    Collapse overview
    As a highly-motivated and application-orientated researcher, Dr. Natalia Bourguignon has proven track record working in interdisciplinary areas. She received a Bachelor in Biotechnology (2010) and her Ph.D. degree (2016) from the National University of Tucumán, Argentina. The objective of her Ph.D. work was the physiological and molecular study of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons bioremediation by actinobacteria. After completion of her Ph.D., she started working in the field of microfluidics with different biological applications at the National Technological University, Argentina. Then, she joined Dr. Shekhar Bhansali’s Bio-MEMS and Microsystems Research Group at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Her major work involved the development of “Lab on a Chip” microfluidic technologies for the production of biotherapeutics, applications in drug screening, and toxicity assessment. She participated in the NSF-awarded I-Corps program (2020) to develop entrepreneurial skills, research feasibility and learn the basics of commercialization, customer, and market of a microbioreactor for the manufacture of affordable biopharmaceuticals. In the RCMI-FIU project, her translational objective is to develop a new microfluidic device that will provide a fast, reproducible, and low-cost approach to improve the treatment of people infected with Trypanosoma cruzi, decreasing health disparities in Chagas disease.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
