The most notable result of your research

When I started to work in leishmaniasis, practically no one knew the disease or its vectors. Currently, a sandfly repellent to control leishmaniasis is advertised on TV. I think, at least in part, that it have been thank to the research of our group.

How did you come to science and why are you still here?

I always liked research, and still in it; even with the same subject (epidemiology of leishmaniasis). Luckily, we continue to arise questions to answer every time we perform a research. That's why we're still here.

A scientific desire

More fundings for research investigations.
