Research and teaching interests

Microinjection is a precise method of introducing DNA, RNA, protein or any water soluble material into a living cell to subsequently study the expression and effect within the cell. The technique has been applied in research projects focused on gene expression in systems appropriate to study cancer, viral pathogenesis and development of antiviral and antioncogenic strategies.
