What is the invention of Lourdes cruz?
Dr. Lourdes Cruz created a way to extract toxins from snails and using them to create useful substances. Dr. Lourdes Cruz was a biochemist.
he made scientific contributions to the biochemistry field of conotoxins, in particular the toxins of the venom of the marine snail Conus geographus. Lourdes Cruz documented the biochemical characterization of the homologous highly toxic monomeric peptides with internal disulfide bonds including: Conotoxin GI, Conotoxin GIA and Conotoxin GII. Lourdes Cruz has helped develop conotoxins for the purpose biochemical probes for examining the activities of the human brain.
