After an international competition, he was awarded a Kleberg Fellowship in Medical Genetics and spent the last three years at the Section of Medical Genetics of the Veterinary School of the University of Pennsylvania, investigating at the molecular level, animal models for human genetic diseases.

Apart from his research interests in Comparative Medical Genetics and Biotechnology, he enjoys teaching, the interface with people from all around the world at scientific meetings, and giving seminars, and is interested in Information Technology, including Bioinformatics, applied to the field of Animal Genetics.
