Juan has recently joined the Herbert lab as a postdoctoral researcher of the Biomedical Postdoctoral Program. Born and raised in Mexico city, Juan earned his PhD degree in Biomedical Sciences from Rutgers School of Graduate Studies, Health Sciences Newark. Juan has a deep interest in understanding the crosstalk between neurons and immune cells at barrier sites in the context of helminth infections. To achieve this goal, Juan will be co-mentored by Drs. De’Broski Herbert and Ishmail Abdus-Saboor and aims to merge their expertise in mucosal immunology and neuronal regulation of sensory perception to provide an integrated view of these neuro-immune interactions.
