Virginia León-Regagnon

Virginia León-Regagnon

Research Scientist, Instituto de Biología – UNAM

Dr. León-Regagnon completed her Ph.D in Biology (Systematics) at the UNAM, followed by postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Toronto and the Royal Ontario Museum. Her research has been focused on the systematics of helminths and the evolution of parasite-host systems, particularly on the parasites of amphibians and reptiles in Mexico. She has also studied some zoonotic water-born diseases in Mexico as Paragonimiasis and Gnathostomiasis. She has supervised 20 undergraduate, masters and Phd students and her 78 papers have received 1427 citations for a h-index of 20 (Google Scholar). She has been part of the leading team of the Mexican barcoding initiative since 2005. During her stay at CBG she has been working on the barcoding of platyhelminthes and nematodes parasites of wild life.
