  • I am interested in the study of diabetes and obesity in a prospective way that will allow researchers to improve the quality of life of those suffering these diseases.
    The need of new therapeutic approaches to combat diabetes and obesity has driven my research. During my PhD project, I have studied the role of apolipoprotein CIII (apoCIII) in the development of diabetes (type-1 and type-2) and obesity. Also, I have used different RNAs based therapies in different animal models to modulate apoCIII levels and protect individuals against these disorders.
