Martha is a chemist with expertise in diverse areas of analytical chemistry. She has worked as an analyst at a licensed third party analytical laboratory, where she focused on developing and validating analytical methods for bioequivalence studies. Later, she had served as a quality control expert in the analytical domain and as a monitor in clinical trials. Her interest in the clinical industry led her to be a part of two of the biggest hospitals in Mexico where she gained expertise in hematology, microbiology, and blood banking. Later, she became a member of the team of forensic chemical experts and started working from day one as a specialist in narcotics and drugs. This enabled her to gain rich experience in GC-MS, FTIR, HPLC-MS/MS, ICP-MS, and other analytical techniques for the separation, detection, and quantification of different molecules such as cannabinoids. She had participated in multiple oral trials defending her legal opinions and worked as an expert consultant. She had worked on the synthesis of small molecules for testing them on multi-drug resistant bacteria and mycobacteria, further developing her analytical skills in column chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, microbiology, and compound elucidation by NMR and HRMS. She carried out a research stay at the University of Barcelona with the organic synthesis team. She had also worked on natural products in France and presented her work at conferences in the USA and France. She received awards and accolades for her exceptional work. She has participated in several conferences as a moderator as well. Martha holds a Bachelor’s in Clinical Chemistry from the Faculty of Medicine UANL and a Master’s in Pharmacy from the Faculty of Chemical Sciences UANL, Mexico.
