Grupo de Fisiopatología y Clínica de la EPOC, Hospital Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Madrid

Luís Puente Maestu, from the Hospital Universitario Gregorio Marañón - Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Madrid, Spain, works in the field of exercise physiology in COPD patients, how it is modified by physical training and the role of exercise testing in the physiological evaluation of fitness of COPD patients for lung surgery. His most recent interest is focused in the physiology and biology of the mitochondrion in skeletal muscle of COPD patients. He has been invited by Esther Barreiro (IMIM) and Joaquim Gea (IMIM).
