Words of Wisdom

“Be your own spectator; seek your own applause” – Seneca


I am a Venezuelan biologist committed to facilitating the adoption of agricultural products enhanced by modern biotechnologies. As a Senior Programme Specialist in the Regulatory Science Group at the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB, Trieste, Italy), I support projects to energize and strengthen biotechnology regulatory offices in the Global South. I work closely with national and international authorities for ensuring regulatory effectiveness in the changing landscape of evolving biotechnologies.

More of my professional activities and background are on my LinkedIn profile and Google Scholars profile.

With no specific order, I go crazy for arepas, pizza, astronomy, and CrossFit. I tweet as @morontafelix.
