I have a master degree in Molecular Biology Techniques and Cytomics in Health Sciences (MSc) with a thesis on the theme Genetic characterization of the gene Toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) in natural populations of European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus). My posterior studies have mainly been focusing in the characterization of the Toll-like receptors (TLRs) in the context of host-pathogen interaction by using Lagomorphs as research models.


Currently I am working on the project “How does the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) immune system recognise the rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) from its non-pathogenic form RCV-A1?” as research assistant.
