The American Society for Microbiology honors María Soledad Ramírez
Date:8/22/2012

Mara Soledad Ramrez, Ph.D., Fellow, National Scientific and Technical Research Council, Buenos Aires, Argentina, has been awarded a 2012 ICAAC Young Investigator Award. Ramrez is honored for her outstanding work in the area of integron participation in gene capture and dissemination. "Ramrez has been involved with almost every aspect of resistance work in microbiology," says Gabriel Gutkind, Universidad of Buenos Aires. "Among her many skills, she possesses extensive experience in the study of the mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance, both in the biochemical characterization and the genetic analysis of the structures associated with the encoding genes."

Ramrez graduated from the University of Buenos Aires, Faculty of Pharmacy & Biochemistry, Argentina, with a major in Biochemistry. After graduating, she gained clinical research training at the Fundacin Favaloro, one of the leading research institutions for research in cardiovascular diseases and organ transplants. Upon completion of her training, Ramrez was awarded a fellowship in Daniela Centrn's laboratory where she earned her Ph.D. with the thesis for the characterization of class 2 integrons in clinical and environmental isolates. This work was presented at national and international meetings, and resulted in five publications in such journals as Antimicrobial Agents & Chemotherapy. In 2007, Ramrez was awarded the IUMS-UNESCO-SGM Fellowship to spend three months in the laboratory of nominator Marcelo Tolmasky at California State University, Fullerton, where she not only generated results for five publications but also established long-term collaborative projects.

After receiving her Ph.D., Ramrez successfully applied for a very competitive postdoctoral fellowship that permitted her to continue her work on antibiotic resistance. During her postdoctoral years she published five papers in prestigious journals. Her success led her to earn one of the few openings to become one of the younges
