Introduction

I am a parasitologist working at the Department of Clinical Laboratory of the University Hospital in Tegucigalpa, the main public health hospital in Honduras. I am also a faculty member of the Research Unit of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Honduras (UNAH). I am member of Instituto de Enfermedades Infecciosas y Parasitologia Antonio Vidal (IAV) board, a non-profit organization devoted to train, advice and conducting research in the field of infectious diseases. I have an Adjunct Associate Professor appointment at the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (SPHTM). I am a member of the PAHO Advisory Committee on Health Research. I combine clinical laboratory, teaching and research activities, with mentoring grade and postgraduate students and faculty members doing research for health, building intersectoral bridges and promoting international collaboration and networking to advance scientific research in Honduras.
