Alejandro Da Silva

My main research interest is the protein network in which HSF1 and HSF2 function. Currently, I am focused on interacting partners of HSF2 in the context of cancer invasion. Finally, I am also studying the role of HSF2 upon proteasome inhibition and protein aggregation.

I participate in activities organized by the local Catholic Church. I enjoy swimming, hiking, and biking.
