    Rodrigo Galindo

    CAPE Lab Manager and Simulation Operations Specialist, Pediatrics - Neonatology

    Bio Prior to joining CAPE, Rodrigo was Senior Director, Special Projects and IT Director for over 15 years at several flagship pediatric subacute facilities: Children?s Recovery Center (CRC), Sub-Acute Saratoga Children?s Hospital (SASH), and Scribbles and Giggles Pediatric Day Health Center (collectively known as Pediatric Recovery Network). Through his tenure he also trained staff in and managed clinical IT and biomedical technology. A notable accomplishment included implementation of Masimo Patient Safety Net (PSN), a centralized and remote monitoring system for pulse oximetry, at CRC and SASH.

    Rodrigo has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (emphasis in Adapted Physical Activity) from San Jose State University and a Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland. Through his professional work at CAPE and in the community through The Medically Fragile Children?s Foundation of Northern California, Rodrigo continues to be an advocate for advancing programs that not only improve the quality of life, but the quality of childhood for children who have severe medical needs and require medical technology to sustain life.

    Dr. M Carolina Gallego Iradi

    Thymus Research Assistant, Pediatrics - Ped Stem Cell Transplantation

    Bio ?Currently working in human transcriptomics & immune system since 2017 at Stanford.

    ? In October 2017 my previous research related to Alzheimer's signs in dolphins got worldwide recognition appearing in tv and newspapers from all around the world such Newsweek, The Times, CBS, Discover, The Chicago Post, Los Angeles Times, Nature, National Geographic Italy (2018) and more. I recently joined to Stanford University (Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine).

    ? I was enrolled in several positions during my career including chairman, business manager, professor, several companies manager and founder and other positions. I'm used to interact with academia, private sector and public institutions.

    ? My initial training focused on marine biology, with special emphasis on trace metal pollution. This work, which involved collaborations with different governmental, private (as Venezuelan Oil Company) and University entities (national and international), was well recognized in Venezuela where I received a merit award by the Town Hall of Porlamar (Margarita Island).

    ? After graduation, I obtained a fellowship to enroll in a Master Degree program in Waste Management at the Universidad Internacional de Andalucia (Spain). My performance in this program allowed me to obtain a very prestigious Biomedicine fellowship (one awarded in all of Latin America) from the Santander-Central-Hispano Bank to begin a PhD in Genetics and Development related to Neuroscience at Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain).

    ? My PhD studies focused on comparative pathology, demonstrating pathology similar to Alzheimer's Disease in dogs and cetaceans. After a few years of work in academia in Venezuela, I obtained an opportunity to become a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Florida (USA).

    ? In 2014, I transferred to the Department of Neuroscience to work with Drs. David Borchelt. Since this time, my work has focused on understanding how mutations in Matrin 3 cause ALS and myopathy. In 2016, I was promoted to an entry level faculty position (Assistant Scientist) in the Department of Neuroscience and my goal includeded the use of techniques in genetics,, cellular biology and chemistry to develop a research program that spans basic science to pharmacological application in neuromuscular disorders.
