Personal profile

Research interests

Since my Ph.D. thesis my work has focused on the study of the mechanisms responsible for the emergence of drug resistance in bacteria, namely the contribution of efflux pumps. In particular, I have studied the contribution of efflux pumps in the development of drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other mycobacteria. Moreover, I was involved in the development of methods that allow the detection of efflux activity in bacteria and the in vitro testing of efflux inhibitors. I am also interested in the identification of new drugs, or adjuvants of already existent anti-tuberculosis drugs, that may be used as new therapeutical approaches. From 2011 to 2016, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Zaragoza in Spain and was involved in the FP7 project More Medicines for Tuberculosis. Presently, I’m a Marie Curie Fellow (H2020-MSCA-IF-2017: iCHEMGENODRUGS_TB) at GHTM and my main research interest is to explore the novel concepts of drug repurposing and comparative chemogenomics to find new drugs against tuberculosis.
