PhD candidate


Medical and Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation. Top Master’s degree. University of Groningen.  

Groningen, The Netherlands (2012-2014)

Cum laude

Research projects:

  • European Research Institute for the Biology of Aging (ERIBA)
    • I created a protocol to isolate cells from adults of C. elegans, which had never been performed before. We also performed single-cell sequencing on them for the first time.
  • Department of Human Genetics.
    • I designed a pipeline for the analysis of RNA-seq in gluten-specific MHC-restricted T cell clones from celiac disease patients (basic bioinformatics). I also optimized ChIP-seq for different chromatin markers in Jurkat cells (wet-lab).

Clinical Biochemistry. Undergraduate. Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP).

Puebla, México (2006-2011).

Magna cum laude

Research Projects:

  • Department of Biotechnology
    • I modified and standardized a protocol for DNA-isolation from bacteria with high-lipopolysaccharide content. I also cloned and performed in silico analysis of two cellulases with potential to generate bioethanol.
  • Cardiovascular Physiology (external internship)
    • I measured the electrophysiological changes of the papillary muscle of the heart of a rat model of diabetes mellitus type II. I also isolated cardiomyocytes from the sinauricular node to perform calcium imaging.
