period 1960-63. Work involved essentially a radiochemical,
autoradiographic, cytological and cytochemical study of
the malignant transformation of normal cells in tissue
culture by a tumor virus. The effects of selected
antimetabolites on nucleic acid and protein biosynthesis
was also investigated. During1959-60 Worked out two
research problems in the department of experimental
biology under Dr. George W. Wooley. The first involved the
use of X-rays and cortisone in varying concentrations
until optimal conditioning was obtained for the growth of
human epidermoid carcinoma in guinea pigs. The second
problem involved the study of the resumption of endocrine
activity in an anaplastic ovarian tumor of A x C rat (histochemical-endocrinology

Curriculum Vitae will evidence my experience in the
medical sciences environment as a research associate in
the Department of Biophysics, Cornell University Medical
School (Sloan-Kettering Division), Research Chemist for
the Department of Defense (Armed Forces Radiobiology
Research Institute), faculty member at both Georgetown
University Medical School and (State) University of Puerto
Rico Medical School (Departments of Physiology and
Biophysics). Co-founder of Cayey Campus, U.P.R. where I
held Chairmanship, Faculty of Natural Sciences. I have
written texts in Human Biology (UPR-AV) and
Neurophysiology of Behavior (Ed. Limusa, Mexico), among
others (see CV). A listing of more than 12 books with
various publishers. I was until 1992 a tenured full
professor in anatomy-physiology and neurobiology at
(State) University of Puerto Rico and retired to work
continue and expand on brain dynamics problem.
Finally, I have had experiences in both the administrative
(Ex-Natural Sciences Faculty Chairman) and legal areas
(litigation attorney in medical malpractice). My current
research intereststs are related to organic (anatomico-physiological)
basis of behavior and consciousness and their
biopsychosocial correlates. Currently active as
Member of various Ultra HiQ groups.
