Prof. Juan-García focuses most of her research in toxicology field for quality and safety in food and feed by studying toxic effects of contaminant compounds present in several food products, and more specifically with mycotoxins. The presence of such compounds in fermented foods is also of consideration. Her research efforts are addressed on evaluating mycotoxins toxicity and risk assessment through majorly in vitro but also in vivo assays by using different techniques and biological models. She holds a Degree in Pharmacy and International European PhD both by University of Valencia. She was Postdoc Researcher at Purdue University (Lafayette, IN, USA) under supervision of Prof. J. Paul Robinson and more recently Visiting Scholar at Harvard University (Boston, MA, USA) with Prof. Florian Engert. She serves as Purdue Alumni Ambassador in Spain since 2014. She has been tutor for ERASMUS students in Faculty of Pharmacy at University of Valencia. She is member of different toxicology societies, Spanish Society of Toxicology (AETOX), European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV), Society of Toxicologist (SOT-Full member) and Hispanic Organization of Toxicologists (HOT), on which she has participated and collaborate in several national and international scientific meetings.
