Cuban is very important for western states. We have much to learn here, Agre told Prensa Latina during a scientific meeting taking place in Havana, in coordination with the Academy of Sciences of Cuba and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Agre acknowledged the studies on malaria in Cuba, and said he needs and would like to know more about it, because he thinks those are advanced works.

He said he hopes to develop joint projects and agreements, but he recognized that the U.S. government is very restrictive in this regard.

From Tuesday until next Friday, 18 U.S. scientists are participating, along with Cuban experts, in a meeting that aims to explore opportunities for cooperation in research on topics as diverse as life sciences, the environment and marine sciences.
