Dr. María del Socorro Flores González wins the MEXWII in 2006

Dr. María del Socorro Flores González, of Nuevo León University (UANL), won the MEXWII 2006 award for her work for her patented processes to diagnose invasive amebiasis, a parasitic disease which effects millions of people in developing countries, and kills over 100,000 each year. The results of 20 years of research, these meet the need for improved diagnostic methods using technologies appropriate for developing countries, previously available diagnostic tests having proved insufficiently sensitive when used in endemic zones. Dr. del Socorro Flores González will go on to compete in India against regional winners from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. (Wipo Magazine)
