Dr. Sciutto is a full-time researcher at the Department of Immunology of the Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas (IIB), UNAM, Mexico. She has studied taeniasis/cysticercosis, aiming to develop inexpensive, rapid, and reliable diagnostic methods; to characterize clinically and epidemiologically the disease in humans and pigs; and to develop an effective, inexpensive, and easy-to-apply anti-cysticercosis vaccine. Dr. Sciutto has also studied GK-1, a cysticercus-derived peptide that is effective as an immunopotentiator agent for animal and human use. As a part of Dr. Sciutto’s interest in neuroinflammation, a permanent cooperation was established with a tertiary referral center in neurology and neurosurgery, the Instituto Nacional de Neurología y Neurocirugía, to study the role of neuroinflammation in Alzheimer disease, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological disorders. Recent works in her research team have focused on improving the anti-cysticercosis vaccine by developing an oral version, and on proposing new approaches to treat neuroinflammation.
