I am an Immunobiologist born and educated in Argentina. My expertise expands parasitology, B-cell and T-cell biology in clinical and experimental settings. During my postdoc at Jean Langhorne's laboratory, I used mouse models to study the immune response to Plasmodium infection, the cause of malaria. My research demonstrated the critical role of IL-21 and follicular helper T cells to control and eliminate Plasmodium infection through B-cell responses. In addition, I studied Plasmodium-specific B-cell responses to natural mosquito-transmitted infection, and demonstrated that Plasmodium-specific atypical memory B cells are not truly “memory” cells, as they require ongoing subpatent infection to persist.
