Superior Technician Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory conducted at IES Renacimiento 2003
Lab technician at the Institute of Health Carlos III, Madrid (AIDS Immunopathology Unit, National Center for Microbiology), 2007 -present.
My interest in the investigation came after an internship at the Hospital Carlos III, specifically in the molecular biology laboratory where I further work in the area of Immunology. I learned the different techniques of molecular and cell biology, which allowed me to start working in 2007 Immunopathology Laboratory of AIDS. Since then I have expanded my knowledge with cloning techniques, characterization of neutralizing antibodies and pyrosequencing techniques, and that's why every day I'm more interested in research.
Currently, working with Dr. Maria Teresa Perez and Dr. Javier García studying the HIV viral envelope and the application of new technologies for studies of viral tropism, as well as the mechanisms of resistance to CCR5 antagonists to better understand the viral pathogenesis.
