Bethesda, USA E-mail Nationality: GuatemalanEMBL information Postdoctoral Fellow Kafatos Group Directors Research From 1994 to 1998 Biography Hide biographyBiography: I started my academic career in Guatemala City, Guatemala, with a BS in Biology (1981), and a degree as a Medical Doctor(1985). I obtained my PhD in Biochemistry (1992) at the University of Arizona, USA. I did my post-doctoral training with Fotis Kafatos at Harvard University (1993-94) and EMBL (1994-98). I am currently working as an Assistant Professor at Colorado State University, USA.
My main areas of interest are the cell biology of plasmodium invasion of mosquito cells, the signal transduction that leads to activation of mosquito immune genes and their effect on malaria transmission. I love science, especially biological research. The biggest success in my career would be to contribute to a better understanding of malaria transmission, and that this work, together with that of other teams, leads to an improvement in the quality of life of people from developing countries.
