I have joined the Jaen University School of Sciences faculty as an assistant professor of cell biology from 1995 to 1999, and was appointed Professor of Cell Biology in 1999. My lab research in the field of inflammation and tolerance on two areas: (1) In vitro evaluation the immunotoxic ability of the peptidic fragments derived from gluten); and (2) the role of tolerance molecules in inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease.
