Established in 2003 within the prestigious precincts of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (ICBM) at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Chile, the Laboratory of Experimental Ontogeny (LEO) stands as a testament to the tireless efforts of Dr. Miguel Concha, M.D., Ph.D. This article delves into the foundation, vision, and significant contributions of LEO in the domain of ontogenic development.
Ontogeny refers to the development of an individual organism from the earliest stage to maturity. Over the years, it has become a crucial aspect of biomedical research, offering insights into developmental processes and potential medical applications.
The Visionary: Dr. Miguel Concha
Dr. Miguel Concha, an eminent figure in the realm of ontogenic development, envisioned a platform where advanced research on ontogeny could be pursued without hindrance. His passion for the subject, combined with his extensive knowledge, led to the birth of LEO.
His dream for LEO was not limited to research. He aimed for it to become a hub of educational excellence, nurturing the next generation of scientists and scholars in the field of biomedical sciences.
Achievements of LEO
Since its inception, LEO has contributed significantly to the biomedical world. With a series of groundbreaking research papers and educational programs, the laboratory has set new benchmarks in the field of ontogenic development.
