Bienvenidos a CienciaPR, una red de recursos para todos los interesados en las ciencias y en Puerto Rico.
My research interest focuses on sexual dimorphisms in CNS autoimmunity. I did my postdoctoral training in Neuroimmunology after a Ph.D. in Physiology & Neuroscience. Allover, I have more than 10 years of in-depth training in rodent models of neurological disorders, including trauma, chronic pain, and inflammatory-induced neurodegeneration. As a postdoc, I was able to implement of a novel technique to assess blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability in vivo in animals models of neuro-inflammation and found some putative genes involved in the sexual dimorphic predisposition to CNS autoimmunity.
As personal interest, I love to cook Puerto Rican food and like to develop recipes with coconut milk, fish and seafood, plantain, "yuca" and other types of "vianda". I also love tropical plants, specially anthuriums and heliconias. I like hiking. I am also a self-taught opera aficionado -mostly Puccini, Verdi, and French masters- and a classic music fan with a preference for Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Handel and Bach. Last but not least, I am a "cat person".
