Introduction

Camilo Ayra Pardo has a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, Major in Biochemistry, from the University of Havana (1996), a Diplomate in Project Management from the School of Bussiness of Madrid (2000) and a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Havana (2009). Camilo's pre-doctoral trainings were at CINVESTAV-IPN in Mexico City (1998), the University of Cambridge (2004) and the Imperial College London (2007). Camilo has post-doctoral short visits to Imperial College London (2010) and the University of Lausanne (2014). For 20 years, Camilo worked at the Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in Havana, Cuba, where he become head of the Environmental Biotechnology group at the Plant Biotechnology Department. He is also a visiting professor at the Faculty of Biology of the University of Havana. From 2008 to 2012, Camilo was the head of a national multidisciplinary and multicentre team involved in the introduction of first Bt-maize in Cuban agriculture. Camilo was a grantee of the International Foundation for Sciences (Sweden) in two occasions (2003 and 2007). Camilo has received several awards for Scientific Excellence from the Cuban Academy of Sciences. At present, Camilo holds a position of Associate Professor at the Henan Provincial Engineering Laboratory of Insect Bio-Reactors, Nanyang Normal University, Nanyang - Henan, China. His major skills and experiences are in the field of Plant Molecular biology, Molecular Entomology, and Molecular Host-Pathogen interaction.
