Eugenia M. del Pino
Eugenia M. del Pino works on comparative aspects of frog early development at the School of Biological Sciences of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador (PUCE), in Quito, since 1972. She was trained in developmental biology at Emory University in the USA, and after completing the doctorate she returned to Ecuador, to teach Biology at PUCE, her Alma Matter in Quito. At Emory she used the frog Xenopus laevis for her research; in Quito, however, she had no access to this frog. She decided to find a local frog, and found a marsupial frog, Gastrotheca riobambae, in the gardens of PUCE, and began an analysis of the reproductive biology and early development of this marsupial frog. More recently she and her collaborators analyzed aspects of early development in poison-arrow frogs (Dendrobatidae) and in foam-nesting frogs (genus Engystomops). She compares the developmental strategies of these frogs with the well studied X. laevis. The comparison reveals the individuality of developmental events during gastrulation, such as blastopore closure and notochord elongation. These processes occur simultaneously in rapidly developing gastrulae of X. laevis. The natural separation of developmental events that occur in slow-developing marsupial and dedrobatid frogs is of interest to model the complex processes of early embryonic development. Eugenia del Pino received the L'Oréal/UNESCO Award for Women in Science for Latin America in 2000, and Emory University, her Alma Matter in the USA, awarded her the Sheth Distinguished International Emory Alumni Award in 2003. She was elected to the membership of the Latin American Academy of Sciences (ACAL) in 1987 and to the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) in 1989. In the year 2006 she was elected as honorary foreign member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and as foreign associate of the National Academy of Sciences (USA).
