  2. Resource Description
    "My major research focus is on glycobiology of Trypanosoma cruzi. More specifically, I have been studying the structure and function of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored glycoconjugates (i.e., glycoproteins, glycolipids) of T. cruzi. Moreover, throughout the years I have been directly involved in the structural and functional analysis of biomolecules from a variety of organisms, particularly pathogenic protozoa and fungi, and arthropod vectors. More recently, I have also been developing a new line of research on the discovery of GPI-anchored biomarkers and molecular targets in cancer cells and tissues for development of new diagnostic tools and therapies. Therefore, I have extensive expertise in the characterization of proteins and their post-translational modifications (GPI-anchoring, phosphorylation, glycosylation, acetylation, methylation, etc.), and other biomolecules (glycans, lipids, and small molecules) from different sources using mass spectrometry-based approaches (e.g., LC-MS/MS, GC-MS)."
