Professional Profile

Prof. Doc. Andres Castillo is Associate professor of the Biology department at Universidad del Valle, Cali.

Between 1995-2002 Professor Castillo completed his undergraduate degree in Biology with a mention in genetics whose research topic was a phylogenetic analysis and molecular variability of the human lympho-trophic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) in the South western of Colombia.

Under the “Joven Investigador Colciencias” program, Prof. Castillo carried out a research in the calculation of the molecular clock of the TAX and 3’ LTR of HTLV-1 gene during 2002 and 2003

Prof. Castillo obtained his Medical Sciences PhD in 2008 at Kagoshima University (Japan) through the scholarship Monbukagakusho (MEXT), where he conducted research on epidemiological and molecular analysis of the Human Papillomavirus HPV in cancers of the upper aerodigestive tract.

In 2006, Prof. Castillo was a visiting researcher in the group of Infections and Cancer Biology of the Cancer Research Center of the World Health Organization (IARC_OMS) in Lyon, France.

Between 2008-2009, he carried out postdoctoral studies on antiviral therapy by using RNA interference and transcriptomic techniques in immortalized cell cultures in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine and the laboratory of the center for Chronic Viral Diseases at the University of Kagoshima, Japan.

In 2013, he was invited researcher of the meta-genomics group of the Valencian Community Centre for Public Health Research (FISABIO-Public Health, Spain)
