Summary

I am a passionate of molecular and cellular biology. During my PhD and now during my postdoc I have been interested in the process that permits the chemical communication between cells. This process is known as exocytosis and consists in the fusion of secretory vesicles with the plasma membrane allowing the release of neurotransmitters and hormones. In my PhD I studied the secretion of catecholamines by chromaffin cells and now in my postdoc I am focused in the release of neuropeptides by neurons. In my next step in my career I would like to apply my knowledge in molecular and cellular biology oriented to find therapies for diseases.
