Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
My PhD in Biomedical Sciences with specialty in Cancer Biology is from the University of Texas- MD Anderson Cancer Center. After graduation I joined the Pharmaceutical Industry as Medical Science Liaison. Specifically I worked for 3M Pharmaceuticals and Abbott Laboratories in the fields of Dermatology, Immunology, HIV and Cancer. More recently I joined Advent Morro Equity Partners to take care of their Biotechnology and Healthcare investments, particularly early stage compounds in development. My career for the last 5 years is serving as a liaison. In my new role, I am a middle-man between investigators with commercially viable ideas and those that provide capital and business expertise to make it happen.
Identifying academic projects with near-term therapeutic and commercial applications. The projects that I am revising are in the areas of cancer, inflammatory diseases, neuroprotection, veterinary medicine, and drug-delivery nanomaterials. Also, I am exploring unmet needs in the Health Care Sector in Puerto Rico that may benefit for private capital.
