He has a strong academic background in virulence and pathogen-host interaction, particularly with regards to the study of bacterial nanostructures involved in intestinal and systemic diseases. As part of the Altin Lab Group, Jorge studies the mechanisms of cancer immunotherapy.
"I like to work at the bench and explore new topics related to genetics and molecular biology."
