Carlos Vera

Carlos Vera received a degree in Electrical Engineering from the Instituto Tecnologico de Tijuana and an M.D. from Universidad Autonoma de Baja California, as well as a PhD in Bioengineering from UC San Diego. He is interested in the molecular basis of erythrocyte membrane skeleton biomechanics, specifically the contribution of tropomyosin and tropomodulin to junctional complexes architecture and their implication on the erythrocyte functional properties.
