I am Biochemistry and Medical Pharmacologist. I obtained my PhD degree in Chemical Sciences in 2000. Over the past 15 years my studies have been focused on the relation existing among immune response, cell death and Trypanosoma cruzi infection, achieving a conspicuous number of relevant results published in good quality journals. I obtained several awards and fellowships, among them I have been Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the University of California Los Angeles in 2015. I have been involved in different national and international projects, being the PI in several of them. I have successfully trained 3 PhD students; each one was honoured with different Awards.I am an Independent Researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), and full Professor at the School of Chemical Science of the Universidad Nacional de Cordoba (Argentina).
