Dr Antonio López Carvallo

CIBNOR, Mexico


Dr. López Carvallo is a junior researcher currently working with the Aquaculture-Homeopathy group, under the academic direction of Dr. Mazón Suástegui at Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas del Noroeste, La Paz, Mexico. He is an actual member of the Baja California Sur State System of Researchers.

Dr. López received Master’s and Doctor of Science degrees from the Centro de Invetigaciones Biológicas del Noroeste, La Paz, Mexico under the supervision of Dr. Mazón-Suástegui and Dr. Arcos-Ortega. He has experience evaluating aquatic organism’s physiology related to reproduction, energetic metabolism and immune response using functional genomics. 

The most recent research of Dr. López includes the evaluation of high-diluted bioactive compounds (homeopathy) to strengthen the immune response of Catarina scallop (Argopecten ventricosus) juveniles. This research included de novo transcriptome profile analysis using RNA-Seq technology, the validation of biomarkers at molecular level using real time qPCR, and received honorific mention in the X Ibero-American Forum on Marine Resources and Aquaculture. Dr. López is Co-inventor of two patents related to homeopathic treatments and has served as reviewer in Aquaculture Research Journal. The main interest of Dr. López is to understand the interaction between high-diluted bioactive compounds (homeopathy) and biological systems in aquatic organisms.
