The Power List 2017
Faculty member, Department of Ophthalmology, New University and Polytechnic Hospital La Fe, Valencia, Spain; Co-founder and Medical Director of the Aiken Clinic in Valencia
Author of over 70 PubMed-listed publications, Udaondo has received the highest honors (best CV) from the Hospital General Universitario de Valencia, where she specialized in ophthalmology. She’s undertaken rotations at La Paz University Hospital in Madrid and the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University in the past. Today, she’s a leading light in age-related retinal diseases, particularly DME, and she is a regular speaker at international congresses and symposia.
Outside of work, Udaondo loves sport; her next challenge is an Iron Man (half-distance triathlon) in Mallorca in May. She also likes animals: her pets include a parrot, a turtle, and a dog. She loves to live with – and for – music: she listens to music whenever she’s performing surgery, training or just walking.
Here’s what a nominator had to say about her: “Bright, hard working, does a lot of research, and founded a big clinic that serves all of her area.”
