Laura Acion is a tenured Associate Researcher at the Calculus Institute (IC), University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) with 15 years of experience working in biostatistics applied to clinical research, mostly in the addiction and neuropsychiatric fields.

She also an Adjunct Associate Researcher at the University of Iowa (USA, 2011-present) and hold a PhD in Biostatistics (University of Iowa, USA) and a Masters in Public Health (University of Iowa, USA). She had family care responsibilities that started in 2005 significantly delaying my doctoral graduation and allowing me to work only part-time between 2011 and 2015.
