Lead Researcher at LNBio - CNPEM. Holds a degree in Biological Sciences from UFSCar (2003) and a Ph.D. in Sciences from the Institute of Physics at USP São Carlos, in the area of Applied Molecular Physics (2008). Conducted part of her postdoctoral studies at the University of Houston and The Methodist Research Institute (2009), and another postdoctoral period at the University of São Paulo, in the Protein Crystallography group at IFSC (2008 and 2010). Has expertise in Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Structural Biology, Biophysical Techniques, and Tissue Engineering. Works on various topics, such as structural characterization of proteins, assembly and stabilization of protein-protein and protein-DNA complexes, spectroscopic studies, analysis of structural stability and biophysics of proteins, and characterization of biotherapeutics.Participated in projects focused on developing diagnostic tests and the COVID task force at CNPEM. Since 2018, started a research line in Tissue Engineering, conducting studies on the development and characterization of reconstructed skin and 3D cultures and organoids, seeking alternative methodologies to the use of animals and toxicological studies through the use of microfluidic systems. Her research is primarily focused on metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes, tissue bio-printing, and skin remodeling.Serves as the coordinator of the Spectroscopy and Calorimetry Laboratory and the 3D Cultures and Microfluidics Laboratory at LNBio - CNPEM and as the coordinator of the Tissue Engineering Platform at LNBio/CNPEM. Represents LNBio as a Central Laboratory associated with RENAMA and is affiliated with the International Society of Microfluidic Systems (iMPS). Has been a CNPq productivity fellow since 2019.
