Bienvenidos a CienciaPR, una red de recursos para todos los interesados en las ciencias y en Puerto Rico.
I am passionate about health policy, and helping the lay community understand innovative science and how it can help our society progress forward. When I am not in lab I enjoy running, trail hiking, playing with my dogs, and reading anything and everything.
I study a rare inherited peripheral neuropathy caused by a mutation in one of the cation chloride cotransporters. Currently, it is unclear how a mutation in the transporter results in the development of peripheral neuropathy, and whether that damage occurs in the central or peripheral nervous system. To uncover some of the mechanisms in the development of this neuropathy, I will be utilizing mouse models to try to understand how the cotransporter functions in basal conditions, and if I can rescue the phenotype in various mouse models.
