I was born in Tulancingo, in the mountainous area of the central state of Hidalgo, Mexico.
I participated in biomedical science-related projects in the Mexican National Health Institutes since I was an undergraduate student.
I obtained CONACYT fellowships for my entire postgraduate education.
I also worked as visitor scholar in Paul Sabatier University of Toulouse, France; JustuS-Liebig University of Giessen, Germany and Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich, Germany.
As a graduate student, my research focused on lipoprotein metabolism in regard to human genetics and metabolism, especially the role of lipoproteins in atherosclerosis development.
Using my previous experience, as a member of the Chapkin Lab, I will be involved in studies examining the role of membrane cholesterol transport and metabolism in relation to obesity and cancer phenotypes.
