Berta studied Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. She obtained her PhD in 2009 at the INIBIC Insitute of La Coruña (Spain) on the effect of pro-inflammatory cytokines in diseased cartilage by using, among other methods, proteomics. She moved then to AMOLF (Amsterdam) to develop new mass spectrometry imaging approaches in the field of orthopaedics. In 2015 she joined Maastricht University as CORE lab leader at the division of Imaging Mass Spectrometry (M4i). Since then, she established her own research line on the application of mass spectrometry imaging and proteomics tools for different biomedical applications.
