【报告人】Professor Alejandra Bravo
María Alejandra Bravo de la Parra (born on 29 April 1961) is a Mexicanbiochemist who was laureated with the 2010 L'ORÉAL-UNESCO Award for Women in Science – Latin America for her work on a bacterial toxin that acts as a powerful insecticide. Bravo has co-authored numerous papers with her husband Dr. Mario Soberon.
Bravo is a researcher at the Institute of Molecular Microbiology of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). She holds a bachelor, master and doctoral degrees in Basic Biomedical Research from the same university and she is a member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences.
