Cata Matias, PhD student, Biochemistry


MD, Universidad CES

I have been researching Matrix Metalloproteinases and their triggers in a periodontitis model, as well as the activation pathways for diverse MMP-inducing molecules. I initially worked on iron metabolism and on the effects that different molecules have in the loading and unloading of iron into transferrin.
