Curriculum vitae

Biographical Notes

Dr. Cherchi, biologist, has 15 years experience on the use of those instruments (microscopy, centrifuge and ultracentrifuge, chemical and biohazard hood, spectrophotometer, etc.) and the performance of methods (cell cultures, serological assays, PCR, etc. ) used in an immunological and parasitological laboratory for diagnosis and research. She participated in studies on genetic characterization of parasites, preparation and isolation of parasitic antigens and antibodies to be used for diagnostic purposes, as well as standardization of diagnostic procedures. She joined the Unit of Gastroenteric and Tissue Parasitic Diseases in 2003, and at present is part of the technical staff of the CRLP Immunology Section.
