Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Industrial Microbiology from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez Campus. Following this, I participated in a Post-Baccalaureate at Duke University. Currently, I am pursuing my graduate studies in Biomedical Sciences and Translational Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. I am working under the mentorship of Dr. George Liu and the primary aim of our research is to understand host pathogen interactions.
My Dissertation focus on the study of the host adaptive immune response to Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. Our studies have found that lack of protection upon S. aureus re-infection is due to modulation of the innate and/or adaptive immune responses during the initial stages of infection.
