Biography

I have a broad background in clinical and research activities, with specific training and expertise in key research areas for this application. As a postdoctoral fellow I have focused my attention on translational studies, bridging clinical problems in scleroderma with molecular pathogenesis of skin, pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary fibrosis
