Ernst a Scientific Coordinator of British Hospital from Buenos Aires, Argentine. After graduating from University of Buenos Aires, she finished is post-graduate studies (PhD) and she was trained in a Respiratory Hospital (Hospital de Rehabilitación Respiratoria María Ferrer). She teaches immunology in University of Buenos Aires and she work as scientific coordinator at British Hospital.

Her studies are focused in airway inflammation, especially in patients with Interstitial Lung Diseases, COPD, Severe Asthma, and Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis. Currently she is working in clinical trials and basic protocols analyzing biomarkers in serum and sputum samples from COPD patients. Besides she is studying biomarkers in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary fibrosis.

Research Interest

  • Non infectious lung diseases (COPD, ILD-IPF, and severe asthma)
  • Sleep apneas
  • Innate Immune Response
