Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Hello, I am currently a first year MD/PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My concentration will be Neuroscience and Aging. I did my undergraduate degree at University of Puerto Rico performing majors in Biology and Industrial Microbiology.
My research interests are Neuropathology, Neuroanatomy and Immunology. In the future, I want to work closely with neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. After I graduate, I want to have a lab in a resourceful hospital that can transfer clinical problems to the lab and viceversa. The transition from the lab to clinical trials should be smooth and a MD/PhD has the power to do so effectively. I do not want to be an evolutionary but a revolutionary scientist, looking for change.
I am currently in the process of rotation. I am writing a proposal for my research project.
