I am post-doctoral researcher of Facultad de Medicina Veterinaria y Zootecnia de la UNAM in México city, México. I work in the field of biomarkers and immunology. My main topic is study and validation of biomarkers related with natural resistance to bovine tuberculosis. In addition, I am interested on how the mycobacterias subvert the immune response to their benefit.
