JUNE 2021-AUGUST 2021
Conducted research in the Neurogenesis and Brain Tumors laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Guerrero-Cazares.
The research was focused on finding the role of the protein CHI3L1 in the progression of glioblastoma and its correlation with other genes, such as SERPINA3, SPP1, and CD44.
The current project aimed to study the impact of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on glioblastoma malignancy and CHI3L1 expression.
The ultimate goal was to contribute to the improvement of the treatment for patients with glioblastoma.
MARCH 2020-DECEMBER 2020
Investigated the molecular mechanism of regulation of gene expression in prostate and breast cancer.
Trained in Molecular Biology Cloning techniques, including DNA extraction, Restriction digestion, Agarose gel electrophoresis, Ligation, and Transformation protocols.
