Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology of Diseases - CBCMe

It is a center dedicated to research in the area of ​​parasitology, immunology, genetics, and molecular biology of tropical diseases. The Center develops projects and programs such as:

  • Genetic epidemiology and molecular biology studies of Leishmania.
  • Project to explore new ways to attack malaria, which is transmitted by parasites of the genus Plasmodium inoculated in humans by female Anopheles mosquitoes.
    • Identification of new receptors in human red blood cells and their ligands in the parasite.
    • Use of Microwaves to destroy the parasite in infected cells.
    • Research project of natural compounds in corals to treat inflammatory processes and Alzheimer’s.
    • Research Project to improve the diagnosis, treatment and control of Tuberculosis (TB) in Panama.
    • ICBG Program: Performs bioassays with natural products extracted from the national biodiversity, in search of antiparasitic and anticancer activity.
