My research is focused on strengthening the epidemiological surveillance system, through the early diagnosis of emerging diseases. The main objective is to provide clinical care and follow-up to patients with febrile syndromes, Leshmaniasis and other diseases that arise in the province of Darién and to migrants who use our country as a transit route. We will focus on providing training to health personnel and other related entities for health monitoring of migrants, from the moment they enter our country through the border with Colombia until they leave it in the Costa Rica area. We will focus as well as in the molecular diagnosis of tropical diseases and identification of new pathogens.

CREATE-NEO members

The Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Disease (CREID) is a coordinated network with centers in regions around the globe where emerging and re-emerging infectious disease outbreaks are likely to occur. Multidisciplinary teams of investigators will conduct pathogen/host surveillance, study pathogen transmission, pathogenesis and immunologic responses in the host, and will develop reagents and diagnostic assays for improved detection for important emerging pathogens and their vectors.

NIAID launched the CREID Network in 2020.This website is run by CREATE-NEO, a member of the CREID Network independent of NIH/NIAID.
