PhD in Science by the Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology Program at the Federal University of São Paulo - DMIP (Note Capes 7). During his doctorate, he worked with the heterologous-boost genetic vaccination model using ASP-2 (amastigote surface protein 2) as an antigen for immunizations against Chagas disease. The main objective of the thesis was to study which chemokine and integrin molecules, the Th1 profile, are important to T lymphocytes migration during immunization and/or infection by T. cruzi. During her direct doctorate, the researcher was awarded a research internship abroad by FAPESP and during a year developed the project in the Department of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester (USA). During the internship abroad, the principal goal was performed the RNAseq analysis of T.cruzi-infected effector CD8+ T lymphocytes. The researcher has experience in Flow Cytometry, FlowSight, Cell Sorting, ELISA, ELISPOT and other immune techniques. Strong performance in Molecular Biology such as: PCR, RT-PCR, RNAseq and Microarray techniques. In Celular Biology has extensively expertise in histological section (frozen tissues), Hematoxylin and Eosin, Immunohistochemistry and Confocal Microscopy. In addition, the research has extensive experience in Cell Culture. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
