His work has been awarded by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, Society for Gynecological Investigation, Spanish Society of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Spanish Fertility Society and Prize Jaime I, 2011 in Medical Investigation for his pioneering work in human endometrial receptivity disorders.

He discovered the transcriptomic signature of human endometrial receptivity (Ruiz-Alonso et al., Fertil Steril 2011). Clinical translation of this work resulted in a patent for the creation of a customized endometrial receptivity array (ERA). Recently, he has created a prediction model for aneuploidy in early human embryo development revealed by single cell analysis. (Vera-Rodriguez, et al., Nat Commun. 2015), together with a new mitochondrial DNA score, named mitoscore as a viability index in human euploid embryos (Diez-Juan, et al., Fertil Steril 2015).
