Adriana Herrera MD

Pediatric Endocrinologist

Clinical Scientist, Study Manager

Research Focus

I have an international clinical and research experience in the medical field. As a pediatric endocrinologist, I worked with patients with hormonal pathologies such as disorders of sexual differentiation and psychiatric disorders including gender dysphoria. My current investigation is related to the PRONIA Study which aims to significantly improve the early detection of psychotic illness. My goal is to continue working in research as a clinical scientist, implementing new innovative methods for early psychiatric pathology detection.
