Carmen rioboo

Microbiology Area - Department of Biology

Faculty of Sciences-University of Coruña

Carmen Rioboo has a degree in Biology and a PhD in Environmental Sciences from the University of Coruña, in both cases obtaining an Extraordinary Prize.
She is currently a Contracted Doctor Professor of the Microbiology area at the University of Coruña since 2017, currently teaching in the Bachelor's Degree in Biology and in the Master's Degree in Molecular, Cellular and Genetic Biology. Regarding his research, he focuses on the search for cytotoxicity and genotoxicity biomarkers in toxicity bioassays with microalgae sensitive to the presence of environmentally relevant concentrations of organic micro-pollutants, participating in national research projects and direction of doctoral theses.

Alexandra Correia

Immunobiology Group / Host Interaction and response

Institute for Research and Innovation in Health, Universidade do Porto 

Rua Alfredo Allen, 208 | 4200-135 Porto, Portugal

Assistant Professor at ICBAS-University of Porto

Alexandra Correia graduated in Animal Science Engineering and holds an MSc in Agrarian Sciences - Animal Production. She defended her PhD thesis in 2012 at University of Minho, Portugal, addressing Candida albicans virulence factors as vaccination targets against systemic candidiasis. Since then, her research has focused on mucosal vaccination against bovine neosporosis. As a member of the i3S Immunobiology group, she has established a new research line directed to the translation of basic research, mostly done in the murine models, into hosts of veterinary interest. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor of Immunology at ICBAS-University of Porto. Her main research interests concern mucosal vaccination, veterinary immunology, and the interaction between immunity and nutrition, namely the modulation of immunity in livestock through diet supplementation.

Alexei Licea Navarro

Department of Biomedical Innovation

Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education of Ensenada, BC

I studied Chemistry Pharmacobiologist at UABC, it could be medicine, it could be biochemist, it was a stepping stone to be able to obtain my master's degree and doctorate in Biotechnology. I did the postgraduate course at the Institute of Biotechnology at UNAM, and the post-doctorate at Scripps Research Institute in the area of Antibody Genetic Engineering. During my academic training, I worked with scorpion toxins and mouse and rabbit antibodies, but when I joined the CICESE Marine Biotechnology group, I had to change my model, and I selected the marine toxins of the Conus snails and the antibodies of the Conus snails. sharks to develop my lines of research. I think this has been one of the most successful academic decisions I have made because they are two types of molecules that are really fascinating for those of us who work with the structure-function relationship of proteins.
