MD   University of Panama, School of Medicine Panama, Republic of Panama., 1963 - 1968

Research Interests:

- Placental mechanisms of defense against infections, Primary Immunodeficiencies. My research deals with placental responses (cytokines, cellular responses) to infections (HIV, malaria) that may affect the fetus. I also investigate immunodeficiencies, liver diseases, and transplantation.

Clinical Focus:

My interests are focused on diagnosis of pediatric pathologic disorders affecting children of all ages. I take special interest in fetal and neonatal pathology and placental pathology. Other interests include: immunodeficiencies, gastrointestinal and liver disorders, placental inflammation, transplant pathology.
