Carlos Perez Arques CV

Postdoctoral Associate
Molecular Genetics and Microbiology
Office hours 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM  


I am a postdoctoral associate working in the Heitman lab as part of the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology of the School of Medicine. I graduated as a Ph. D. in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from the University of Murcia in Spain, my home country and a wonderful place to visit. I am fascinated by fungal biology and especially, in molecular mechanisms exploited by opportunistic pathogens to cause disease.

In my spare time, I love building themed LEGO sets, the bigger the better, from my favorite movie sagas. I am a big science fiction and fantasy fan, but I also like classic films -particularly film noir and western- and old jidaigeki and chanbara movies. Also, I like to play games, either video or board games, and going out once in a while. Especially, if there is food involved.
