Rosa Maldonado
Associate Professor, Biological Sciences

The focus of Dr. Maldonado's research is on developing novel immune- and chemotherapy approaches to treat Chagas disease and Leishmaniasis. In this regard, Dr. Maldonado embraced molecular, cellular and biochemical methodologies to characterize and validate potential drug targets, as well as the development of high-throughput systems for drug screening. Her research involves in vitro and in vivo testing, using the murine models for Chagas disease and cutaneous leishmaniasis.
