Ernesto S. Nakayasu
Ernesto S. Nakayasu graduated from the University of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil, with a degree in biological sciences. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas, El Paso, Tex, USA, working with Dr. Igor Almeida on structural and functional analyses of Trypanosoma cruzi to host interactions. Then, he became a Postdoc Research Associate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, Wash, USA, working on cell signaling of host-pathogen interactions, using Salmonella enterica as a model system. Nakayasu is currently a Research Associate at the Bindley Bioscience Center, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind, USA. His research interests include molecular aspects of cell signaling transduction in the interface host-pathogen interactions of intracellular microbes. His expertise, moreover, includes large-scale analysis and integration of multiple omics (proteomics, posttranslational modifications, transcriptomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics) and systems biology.
