Eduardo Silva was invited to give a seminar and to visit the UC Davis Chile program. The UC Davis-Chile program has three main objectives: 1) Create a platform for collaborative research between UC Davis and Chilean researchers, to support life science innovation in Chile and California; 2) Effectively transfer life sciences technologies from UC Davis and from the collaborative programs of the UC Davis Chile center, to the Chilean industry; and 3) Link UC Davis’ educational programs and creation capacity with Chile. While the UC Davis-Chile Life Sciences Innovation Center UC have a focus on the needs of the agricultural-food sector in Chile, they are also considering to expand on biomedical areas. In addition of meetings with the scientific leadership of the UC Davis-Chile, Prof. Silva delivered two seminars about his research efforts. This visit provided a fantastic opportunity to interact with Chilean researchers and local University leaders.
