Daniel Costa Biography

I graduated from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in 2009. Afterwards, I performed a post-grade course in veterinary ophthalmology at the same university (2010), a one year rotating small animal internship at the private referral Ars Veterinaria in Barcelona (2010-2011) and a Master of Science in clinical research (2012-2013). Then, I worked in general practice and as scientific assistant at the UAB. I obtained a PhD degree about cornea and sclera cryopreservation in July 2015. From September 2015 to August 2018, I performed an ECVO residency in comparative veterinary ophthalmology at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. In 2019 I obtained the ECVO diploma. I was the head of unit of the ophthalmology service at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of the UCV (Valencia, Spain) (2018-2022). Nowadays I’m a part-time senior clinician at Optivet referrals (Havant, UK) and consultant at Vet-CT (Cambridge UK).
