Bienvenidos a CienciaPR, una red de recursos para todos los interesados en las ciencias y en Puerto Rico.
I am a postdoctoral research at Duke university in Durham, North Carolina. I did my graduate training at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX. My background as a scientist is very diverse, I was trained as a biophysicist/biochemist during my graduate career. I am trained to look at a biological problem as a biochemist but my graduate degree and formal academic training is in molecular microbiology. This gives me a special advantage, because I also understand how microbes behave. Having this knowledge I can apply multidisciplinary tools into my research projects and go beyond the scope of a traditional research program. Currently my in my postdoctoral training I am seeking additional knowledge in bacterial genetics that would further complement the set of skills I have.
My work consists in the study of the Type 3 secretion system in Chlamydia trachomatis and the strategies this bacteria uses early during infection to subvert host cellular processes. More specifically, I am interested how Chlamydia is able to regulate the ordered secretion of Type 3 effector proteins and how this helps the bacteria to effectively establish a niche inside the eukaryotic host in the form of an inclusion.
