Dany Domínguez Pérez is currently working as Assistant Researcher at CIIMAR-UP in the project MOREBIVALVES - "Molecular strategies to be applied in the depuration of commercial bivalves for the elimination of toxic compounds". In this sense, he is working on shotgun proteomics combined with transcriptomic approaches to detect differential genes/proteins expression in bivalves (Mytilus galloprovinciallis, Ceratosderma edule, Donax trunculus) contaminated with toxins produced by dinoflagellates. Dany received his degree in Biology from Havana University, Cuba in 2009 and then a Diploma in Higher Education (2011) from Universidad Central de Las Villas, Cuba; where was a member of the staff of the Biology Department, from 2009 to 2011. He holds a PhD in Biology from the University of Porto in 2017. He is motivated in the application of classical and high-throughput techniques on topics related to toxicology and toxinology.
