Dr Ximenez had his PhD in Toxicology at School of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ribeirão Preto from University of São Paulo, Brazil. During his doctoral studies, he was trained in a wide variety of lab techniques that were applied to clinical science projects aimed at identifying the determinants of pharmacological response and variability in humans. He has experience in mass spectrometry (sample preparation, analytical method development and validation, HPLC and LC-MS/MS), molecular biology (i.g. nucleic acid extraction, RFLP-PCR and qPCR) and some experience on R language (ggplot2, tidyverse, carrot, plyr and Bioconductor). Dr Ximenez is interested in the interplay of epigenetic, genetics and the environment, namely how genetic variants and environmental variables can affect variation in phenotypes. The ultimate goal is to translate his findings into new strategies for prevention and treatment. ResearcherID: http://www.researcherid.com/rid/G-7863-2012.
