Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
My name is Sheila Berríos and I am an Undergraduate Student of Biology in the UPR of Humacao. I am a member of the RISE program in the same university and also interested in pursuing graduate or medical studies when I complete my bachelor's degree.
In the laboratory of the Dr.Carmen Hernandez we are working with the mucociliary system of the Rana Pipiens. Right now we are concentrated in the role that Substance P and acetylcholine play in this system, we are also interested in NK-1R (Substance P receptor) and Muc3R (acetylcholine receptor) and on the molecular characterization of NK-1R.
