Palabras Claves

  • VIH
  • VPH
  • Enfermedades Tropicales y desatendidas
  • Salud Global

Interés de Investigación
Mis líneas de investigación se enfocan en la patogénesis del VIH, principalmente en poblaciones vulnerabilizadas, con esto brindar mayor evidencia en las co-infecciones con virus emergentes y/o microbios oportunistas. Mis líneas de investigación también tienen como fin el poder brindar un marco de referencia para el avance de la región del Caribe en enfermedades tropicales y la salud Global.
