The Semillero of Epigenetics and Lung Cancer began work in September 2014 and is led by Dr. Adriana Rojas and Dr.Alejandra Cañas. This group’s main function is to encourage students to take an interest in research. Specifically in the area related to Epigenetics and lung cancer. Today the nursery has 21 students of doctorate, masters and undergraduate in areas related to medicine and biological sciences.
