10th International Virology Summit
Antonio Alberto Rodríguez Sousa
Complutense University of Madrid, Spain
Antonio Alberto Rodríguez Sousa has an extensive experience in systems dynamics and modeling. With biological training, he develops part of his personal work at Complutense University of Madrid on the simulation of the effects presented by different treatments on alveolar development in people with cystic fibrosis, a disease in which he has a high degree of specialization on the lung involvement in adults. In this sense, he has evaluated how the application of different drugs contributes to improve the hope and quality of life of patients. Specifically, and under the appropriate assumptions, it tries to make the scientific and medical sector aware that the application of a gene therapy using a virus as a transmission vector would contribute to a reversion of cystic fibrosis when the affected cellular processes are resumed. Finally, research in this area is essential to be able to propose curative treatments for diseases of genetic transmission.
