Laboratory Technician in Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Madrid (AIDS Immunopathology Unit, National Center of Microbiology), 2005-present.
My interest for Immunology began when I performed a fellowship training at Instituto de Salud Carlos III. Since then I have been working in the AIDS Immunopathology Laboratory under the direction of Dr. José Alcamí.
During my career I have learned several techniques of molecular biology, cell biology, cloning techniques, characterization of neutralizing antibodies, etc. Nowadays, I continue to learn many new techniques and that is why my interest in the subject has grown year after year.
Currently, I work with Dr. Mayte Coiras who is conducting a study for characterize the possible application of new drugs to inhibit cellular factors essential for HIV-1 replication, such as PKCθ and Lck, in order to determine their usefulness for the treatment of HIV-1 infected patients with acute infection.
