Beyond My Medical Training

The RIPL_Effect Research Team (RIPLRT) launches its Journal Club with its very first speaker, Dr. Félix E. Rivera-Mariani, Principal Investigator of the RIPLRT. Dr. Rivera-Mariani’s topic was “Speaking the Language of Science”, in which he discussed discussed the epicycles of generating a peer-review manuscript and approaches to make the manuscript publication-ready. Dr. Rivera-Mariani also discussed with the audience the article Serological Reactivity and Identification of IgE-Binding Polypeptides of Ganoderma applanatum Crude Spore Cytoplasmic Extract in Puerto Rican Subjects. This published peer-review article is part of recent efforts to address the high prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases, such asthma and allergic rhinitis in Puerto Rico.
