Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Biotechnology with a minor in Biology from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico-Arecibo Campus. I was awarded Magna Cum Laude and the Medal of the Science and Technology Department that is awarded to only two students who have demonstrated outstanding development in science. I finished my Ph.D. in Biochemistry at University of Puerto Rico, Medical Sciences Campus. I worked under the mentoring of Dr. Suranganie Dharmawardhane at the Biochemistry Department. My research project focused in understanding the mechanisms of resistance to anti-EGFR therapy in Breast Cancer. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California in San Francisco at the Department of Radiation Oncology.
