Rafael performed his postdoctoral stay in the Micronutriments, Métabolisme et Signatures Biologiques group associated with the Human Nutrition Unit at the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique in Clermont-Ferrand (France). During the year 2010 he spent 6 months at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences of Aberystwyth University (United Kingdom). Currently, he is a “Ramon y Cajal” scientist.
