Two brilliant minds, product of our public university
Argentines like to complain about what we don’t have, but we often find it hard to see the possibilities we have. Our public universities are a national pride and their graduates are recognized worldwide. The National Academy of Medicine of the United States, a consulting body of the United States government and one of the leading health research corporations, announced that it will incorporate two Argentines as members. Let’s introduce them to you.

Silvio Gutkind is a PhD inPharmacy and Biochemistry, distinguished professor in the Department of Pharmacology of the Faculty of Medicine and associate director of Basic Sciences of the Center of Cancer Moores (Moores Cancer Center), University of California, San Diego. He completed his studies at the University of Buenos Aires in 1985.
What made Gutkind recognized by the Academy was his findings on the elucidation of the basic mechanisms of transduction of signals that control tumor growth and metastasis. This allowed the development of new precision therapies for the prevention and treatment of cancer based on information on individual genomic alterations of each patient .

Two clear examples of our public universities being proud worldwide.
Argentina, licenciada en Comunicación Social y correctora. Me apasiona la escritura, la propia y la ajena. Mi amor por las palabras, por las frases mágicas y perfectas, me llevó a dirigir mi carrera profesional hacia la redacción, a lo que luego sumé la corrección para mejorar mis textos y, también, los de otros autores. Porque una imagen no siempre vale más que mil palabras. Gracias por leerme.
