Salvador Quiroz-González, BSc, M.D, PhD

Department of Acupuncture and Rehabilitation, State University of Ecatepec Valley, Ecatepec State of México, Mexico.

Dr. Salvador Quiroz González professor-researcher of Neurophysiology in the department of Acupuncture and Rehabilitation at State University of Ecatepec Valley (UNEVE), State of Mexico, received his Bachelor (Honors) in Medical Acupuncture and Rehabilitation. He received his M.D. and Ph.D. in Molecular Neurobiology and Neuroscience from the Center of Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute, Department of Physiology, Biophysics and Neuroscience, Mexico city. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience (USA), Society for Acupuncture Research (USA) and the National System of Researchers from Mexican National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT). In 2017, he participated in the Training Program on Technology of Acupuncture and Tuina. Xiyuan Hospital of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, Beijing, China.

He has been engaged in Traditional Chinese Medicine research from the neurophysiological approach for years. Professor Quiroz-Gonzalez is a designer of Neurophysiological Acupuncture and Psychoneurobiomodulation. His acupuncture techniques are teaching and used nationally and internationally. He has also been studying the effect of food restrictions and experimental diabetes on the primary afferent depolarization and presynaptic mechanism in the spinal cord, by mean of electrophysiological and nonlinear time series analysis. Besides, particular interest has been developing in the study of central regulation of nociceptive and non-nociceptive inputs by primary afferent depolarization and presynaptic mechanism activated by peripheral nerve stimulation as electroacupuncture (EA). His more recent research is about the effect of EA on locomotion and the hyper-excitability of motoneurons in the spinal cord of experimentally injured models.

Dr. Quiroz has published original research manuscripts in scientific journals, including original papers, reviews, and book chapters related to the above-mentioned field as leading or co-authors.   Dr. Quiroz has delivered multiple platforms or poster presentation and educational workshop at national and international scientific meetings.

In 2015 he became the coordinator of the academic group of Transdisciplinary Health (CAST) at the State University of Ecatepec Valley. His team in CAST has focused on the analysis of biopsychosocial factors associated with health-disease processes, the developing systemic models for intervention applicable to vulnerable groups. The approach is performed from an electrophysiological, neurochemical, histological, molecular and clinical.
