Nuria Saigi-Morgui, PhD, is a Research Epidemiologist at RTI-HS. She holds a PhD in Pharmacogenetics from Lausanne University (Switzerland), an MPH with a focus on Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona), and an MSc in Pharmacy from Barcelona University. Dr. Saigi-Morgui's doctoral research focused on the evaluation of the metabolic side effects and pharmacogenetics of psychotropic treatments through an observational clinical study that involved coordination of a multidisciplinary team, patient recruitment, and data collection. She also acquired experience in designing and readapting study protocol according to guidelines and ethics committee requirements. Previously, Dr. Saigi-Morgui served as a research assistant with the World Health Organization performing review and analysis of tuberculosis financing across low and middle income countries in Europe and, during an MPH internship on Epidemiology at the Barcelona Public Health Institute, she investigated the profile of injection drug users and access to health services in Spain, gaining experience in cross-sectional studies.
