She has participated as coordinator and partner in the European human Pluripotent stem cell registry, funded by the European Comission (2013-2018). She is involved in research projects towards the clinical application of cell therapy with pluripotent stem cells in the field of retinal degeneration. Dr Veiga has published more than 300 scientific articles in national and international journals, 73 book chapters and has 6566 citations with an h-index of 41.

Begoña Arán Corbella worked at the in vitro fertilization laboratory of the Institut Universitari Dexeus from 1986 to 2007.
