Jorge I. Arango

Research Scientist


My work is targeted to the development and promotion of systems that help with molecular target identification towards condition specific and personalization of care. I am also interested in studying clinical and molecular mechanisms involved in neuronal injury as well as the modulation of natural functional reparative processes.
