Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I am an Associate Professor for Neuroscience with a strong interest in synaptic transmission. I currently run a lab with two graduate students and three technicians and several undergraduate students.
The main focus of our research is on synaptic function. By using a multidisciplinary approach that includes molecular biology, fluorescence microscopy, live imaging, electrophysiology, and electron microscopy we investigate how the properties of synaptic vesicles determine synaptic function in the normal and the diseased state.
