I am Associate Professor of Biochemistry at the Facultad de Química, UdelaR, Uruguay. In December 2010, I was elected as Coordinator of PEDECIBA-Química.

Pedeciba-Quimica is the NAO member of IUPAC in Uruguay.

Facultad de Química and PEDECIBA-Química are organizing together several activities in Uruguay to celebrate the IYC. As a member of both institutions I am very interested to join the international community of chemists and to share information about the activities in Uruguay.
