We are a research group at the School of Science of The University of the Republic of Uruguay (UdelaR). Our research is focused on the development of new nucleic acids / protein detection techniques in biological samples. Our aim is to harness the power of extracellular RNAs and extracellular vesicles for non-invasive disease monitoring in liquid biopsies. We also perform basic research on RNA-mediated intercellular communication and RNA delivery. We are partnered with the Functional Genomics Laboratory at the Pasteur Institute of Montevideo, where a substantial part of our research is performed. Many of our lab members are shared between both institutions.
