Bienvenidos a CienciaPR, una red de recursos para todos los interesados en las ciencias y en Puerto Rico.
I graduated from University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez in 2007, with a BS in Industrial Microbiology. Then, I pursued my PhD at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Infectious Diseases and Immunology. During my graduate training, I studied the mechanism underlying the lack if immune response to S. aureus reinfection, where I developed mouse models to study the adaptive immune response. Specifically, I studied how T cells, macrophages and dentritic cells interact with the pathogen in order to elicit the immune response. After my graduate training, I joined Dr. Madeline Torres-Lugo's Laboratory at UPR-M to pursue a Post-doctoral fellowship in Biomedical Sciences and Nanotechnology. Currently, I an honored to work as a Research and Development Scientist in Kite Pharma. This company engineers T cells to manipulate the immune system and fight cancer.
My research interest focus on T cell biology and how we can manipulate the immune response for therapeutic purposes.
