He also received a Biology Degree from University of Valle, Columbia. Dr. Cuero has carried out most of his scientific research activities in the United States, and part in the UK during his PhD studies. He also attributes his creative scientific practice to many of his mentors and colleagues that he’s come across from many different parts of the world. He is a former research associate at the USDA, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, 1987. He is also a former research scientist of the Texas A&M University System on the campus of Prairie View, Texas, USA. Currently, he is a consultant and advisor on microbiology and biotechnology in the USA, as well as a mentor and founder of the International Park of Creativity (IPOC), whose main aim is to develop the culture of creativity in young people (www.ipoc.co). Dr. Cuero has numerous inventions, of which 22 have been patented and granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office as of 2023, with more inventions as patent pending. In addition, Dr. Cuero has written some of his scientific research work in different journals including microbiology, biotechnology, mycotoxin, and molecular and synthetic biology. Also, he has written a number of books, including his most recent one published in 2022, Water and Ions as the Conditions Necessary for the Presence of Life: The Secret History of Life, which relates to the process of biomolecules pertaining to potential presence of life. In addition, Dr. Cuero has published books on creativity, including How to Create: The Joy of Creativity, Loneliness as a Source of Creativity, as well as his biography Between Triumph and Survival. Currently, he is writing more books including one on the COVID-19 pandemic, and others on fear and courage throughout civilization related to creativity. Dr. Cuero received the NASA Certificate of Recognition in 2007 for one of the two patented inventions that he produced for the institution, during his tenure at the Texas A&M University System, at the Campus of Prairie View, USA, along with the late Dr. David McKay, former JSC-NASA scientist. In 2008, he also received an award from the Texas A&M University System for this patented invention. Dr. Cuero has also been recognized with the Outstanding Alumni Award in 2010 from Heidelberg University, Ohio, USA.

COVID Ghost Game was written to reflect how the COVID-19 pandemic left many people across the world fearful of the unknown. Whilst the pandemic was not the first instance of such widespread infection in human history, it was for the majority of the population alive today, and it is the fear of the unknown that kept many people in a state of terror. Therefore, the author of this book, R. Cuero, PhD, using his forty-years of experience as a microbiologist at the cellular and molecular level, attempts to share a grounded knowledge of the COVID-19 virus in order to demystify the people’s believes of the pandemic, but rather to use knowledge to understand it. Within an easily understandable and humorous narrative, this book gives us a glimpse of a more comprehensive molecular, and epidemiological perspective of the virus without losing its scientific significance.
This book, drawing on the author’s extensive scientific research in different parts of the world and reports from other scientists, explores the intricate interdependence between water and ions. Water is well-known as the best diluent for supporting life, which allows the flow of molecules, which are made up of ions, from one particular point to another, but in many cases, despite the presence of water, life and biological entities are not found. This book allows the reader to…
This book is based on history report by different authors, and also the cultural, intellectual, and scientific perceptions and experiences of the author confronting fear and courage throughout his life in many parts of the world. He highlights overcoming fear of diseases and illiteracy when he was growing up. The COVID-19 pandemic is an example of what the author describes as a cause of fear in this book. Hence, COVID-19 brought an apocalyptic view as well as the exposure of our most hidden feelings of fear, which produced different collective responses including ritualism and myths, or reasoning.

What if you never had to fear being lonely again—not because you could avoid the pain of being alone, but because you knew how to transform that feeling into positive action? Author R. Cuero, PhD, offers a compelling view of loneliness as a tool—not a burden.

In the eyes of Raul Cuero’s high school basketball coach, everybody is born with one particular attribute. And, according to Raul Cuero’s coach, Raul would never be anything more than a big and burly guy who could play sports. Why would anyone expect anything else from a guy whose grandmother couldn’t even speak Spanish. Here was a 109-year old woman who had lived in Buenaventura, Colombia her whole life and still could only speak an African language that wasn’t spoken by many people in Buenaventura. The change of house and language did provide Raul with a break from the regimented household of his parents.
Dr. Cuero, who is now a scientist and inventor, as a child was attracted by the behavior of insects and lizards in nature, but he also was very keen in knowing the nature of plants while he accompanied his greatmother to collect plants for herbal medicine. In addition, Dr. Cuero as a child was attracted by understanding cars’ movement including their parts such as tires, batteries, carburetors, and radiators. Thus, he learned at an early age from a mechanic in a mechanical shop next to his house about these car parts during his school vacations. This experience gave him the appreciation in the value of doing things with his hands at an early age and allowed him to develop a passion for science.
