Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I worked for seven years in the laboratory of Professor Doug Melton at Harvard University. I worked as a Research Assistant in various projects related to the developmental biology of the pancreas. In addition, I participated in research exploring the differentiation of human embryonic stem cells into pancreatic beta (insulin-producing) cells. A project that is ongoing in the lab.

Since moving to Berkeley Ca and I worked at the Children's Hospital in Oakland where we I set up a stem cell lab. Reecntly I changed jobs and I joined the Bertozzi group at UCBerkeley in the Dept. of Chemistry as Lab Manager.
