Professional Information

Studied Engineering in Molecular Biotechnology at Universidad de Chile and performed a PhD training joining the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program, with a mention in Immunology, at Dartmouth College (New Hampshire, USA), from which she graduaded in 2010. During these postgraduate studies, carried out at the laboratory of Dr. Randolph J. Noelle, she gained a solid training in the use of experimental models (murine) such as skin transplantation, tumor, among others, to study immune tolerance.
