Dr. Jorge Morales Montor studied the Biology studies in the faculty of Higher education Iztacala UNAM, obtaining the title in 1992. It obtained the doctoral degree in October, 1997. His doctoral thesis was recognized by the Award Lola and IgoFlisser PUIS after the best posgrado thesis at national level in the field of parasitology, recognition that also already received how tutor, since one of its pupils of Doctorate gained in 2008 the same award. He did a Post-doctoral stay in the Departament of Cellular Biology of the University of Georgia, in the laboratory of Dr. Raymond T. Damián, one of the parasitólogos most recognized in the world and received a scholarship of Fogarty Foundation to carryout investigations on the schistosomiasis in the baboon, being Pan american Fellow for 4 years. It was repatriated to Mexico in the year 2001 by the CONACYT and one integrated to the Department of Immunology of the Institute of Biomedical Investigations of the UNAM how Associate Investigator "C", and where he is at present a Titular Investigator C of Definitive TC in the Institute of Biomedical Investigations. In the Level of Cousins to the Academic Performance, it is a Level D, for the second consecutive period. To the date, Level is III for the second consecutive period in the SNI. With invitations, to give conferences on its specialization area about the world constantly (more than 100), and the invitations to be a part of the publishing committee of more than 20 international magazines indizadas, the internacional community recognizes the leadership of Dr. Morales Montor in its area, the parasitology. Its investigations are characterized by an exhaustive and meticulous experimental work, and its supreme scientific production already 140 articles in magazines indizadas international, and the majority like the first author or corresponding author in magazines of high impact like Nature, Journal of Immunology, Journal of Infectious Diseases and Scientific Reports, between others. Its brilliant trajectory has deserved his more than 30 Awards, how the Award Miguel Alemán Valdez in the field of Health 2006, the Distinction National University for Young Academicians in the field of Investigation in Natural sciences 2006, the Award Veterinary CANIFARMA 2007 and 2009 in the field of Fundamental research, and the Award Heberto Castillo Martínez Cardinal City 2009 for Young Latin-American Academicians in Fundamental research. Also it has been rewarded by many distinctions, such as its revenue to the Mexican Academy of Sciences (2005), and the being one of few Mexican scientists in being induced to the Academy of Sciences of Latin America (2008). It has titled and directs more than 35 Licentiate pupils, 8 of Mastery and 15 of Doctorate, and has directed more than 30 Social service pupils, and in investigation stays in its laboratory. He was a President of the Mexican Society of Parasitology, and at present he is a President, and founder, of the Mexican Society of Neuroinmuno endocrinología. It has been sworn of the Award Lola and IgoFlisser PUIS, and jury of the Award Heberto Castillo. He is a ticket inspector and dictaminador of national agencies (DGAPA, CONACyT, FMA, Scientific Institute Pfizer, AMC) and international (Welcome Trust Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Britissh Council, CONECyT Argentina, COMPECyT Colombia, between others). It is of emphasizing that Dr. Morales Montor is a Young scientist, who has developed its meteoric and brilliant career in Mexico, supporting and contributing to the scientific development of our country, with the generation of new knowledge of border in the world, with the formation of human resources of high level, and with the application of its basic knowledge to generate new technologies, which could be used in the benefit of the health of the inhabitants of the country.
