The Infectious Disease and Human Health Seminar Series is presenting a Seminar with Andrea Gamarnik of the Leloir Institute. Dr. Andrea Gamarnik is a molecular virologist. She earned her PhD degree in Biochemistry, in the University of Buenos Aires in 1993. After postdoctoral training at UCSF, she returned to Argentina and established her laboratory at the Institute Leloir. Since then, her laboratory became a reference in dengue virus basic biology, making seminal contributions to our understanding of viral RNA replication. She is currently the Director of the Institute of Biochemistry IIBBA-CONICET at the Leloir Institute and Principal Investigator of the Molecular Virology Laboratory. She has served as a Board Member of the Leloir Foundation from 2008 to 2015. She has been an International Scholar of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and became a member of the American Academy of Microbiology (the only virologist from Argentina in this Academy). She is also a member of the Latin American Academy of Science, ACAL and has received important awards such as the L’Oreal-UNESCO “For Women in Science” in the representation of Latin America in 2016, the Virology Trajectory award from the Argentinean Association of Microbiology, the Konex award 2003-2013 in microbiology and the Democracy Award 2017. She currently serves as Academic Editor for the scientific journal PLoS Pathogens.
