In the last 10 years he has dedicated himself to develop two lines of research: a) the study of microbial adhesion to different surfaces and with different models and b) the diagnosis and study of the virulence and resistance of Candida isolates from different populations of risk as older adults, kidney patients, HIV, children and adults in intensive care, etc. Regarding the first line has experience and has standardized static important models in microplates, dynamic in bioreactors and in vivo in catheterized rats, which has allowed him to evaluate the biofilm formation capacity of various bacteria and yeasts to different biological and inhertes materials such as polymers of biomedical use, likewise these models have allowed him the evaluation of the expression of genes and the activity antibiofilm of drugs, plant extracts, various nanoparticles, among other interesting tests.
