She did a posdoc in medicinal chemistry at the Research Institute for the Discovery of Pharmaceuticals of Rosario (IIDEFAR-UNR) under the direction of Dr. Ricardo Furlan. She is currently an Assistant Researcher at CONICET and Assistant Professor in the Parasitology Department of ​​the FCByF. Within Dr. Serra’s group, her work focuses on studying the role of α-tubulin acetylation in the dynamics of the cytoskeleton in the flagellate protozoan Trypansoma cruzi, particularly in the characterization of the enzymes responsible for this post-transcriptional modification. These are potential target mechanisms for the development of new trypanosidal drugs.
