Birthplace: Brazil

Full Professor and the Head of the Department of Paediatrics of Ribeirao Preto Medical School of the University of Sao Paulo (Brasil - FMRP-USP). Supervisor of Master, PhD and Postdoctoral students. Holds a Research Productivity Scholarship at CNPq since 2007. Doctor at UFSM-RS (1991), Medical Residency at Paediatrics and Paediatric Endocrinology at HC-FMRP-USP (1995); Master's degree (1997): "Interaction between circadian rhythm of cortisol and sleep in preterm infants" and Doctorate (2001): "Molecular basis of adrenocorticotropic tumours" at FMRP-USP. Postdoctoral fellow at the University of Montreal, Canada (2001-2003): "Molecular basis of macronodular adrenal hyperplasia". Teaching in 2013 (Adrenocortical Tumorigenesis). He is the Director of the Department of Paediatric Endocrinologia of the Brazilian Society of Endocrinology and Metabology (SBEM) and the Coordinator of the Continuing Education Commission of the Latin American Society of Paediatric Endocrinology (SLEP). He organized and was the president of 2019 SLEP Congress, the 2021 Sao Paulo State Congress of Endocrinology (COPEM) and of the 2022 Meeting of Paediatric Endocrinology (EBEP.) He received the Gutemberg Rocha Award as a distinguished professor at FMRP-USP. He was a Professor honored by 14 FMRP Undergraduate medical classes. He received the following Research Awards: CAPES Theses (n = 1), COPEM (n = 3), SLEP (n = 4), Presidential Poster of the Endocrine Society (n = 2) and Editora Abril's 2014 Health Award. At HC-FMRP-USP he is one of the coordinators of the Center for Genomic Medicine Ad hoc Consultant at FAPESPe CNPq and the University of Padua, Italy. He is Sectional Co-editor (Endocrinology and Paediatrics) of the Brazilian Journal of Biomedical Research and Biology. Reviewer of journals including The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, European Journal of Endocrinology, Clinical Endocrinology, Hypertension and Brazilian Archives of Endocrinology, among others. He has an intense dedication to undergraduate teaching, coordinating paediatric undergraduate teaching and is an active member of the FMRP-USP Undergraduate Commission. Acts extra-walls with CARL Diabetes League Tutor. He works in Assistance and Extension in the HC-FMRP-USP Paediatric Endocrinology Department, where he is the head of the discipline. At FMRP-USP Graduate, he coordinates the Teaching Improvement Program (PAE) and is vice-coordinator of the Graduate Program in Child and Adolescent Health. Coordinates the HC-FMRP-USP Laboratory of Molecular Endocrinology and guides undergraduate, master's, doctoral and postdoctoral students. His research focus (ORCID: 0000-0003-4778-8803) mainly involves the study of the molecular basis of endocrine diseases, especially adrenal, such as adrenocortical tumors (CAT). He is Principal Investigator (PI) of FAPESP Thematic Project, whose focus is to evaluate cellular signalling pathways (Wnt / beta-catenin, SHH, YAP1-Hippo and VDR) through Next Generation Sequencing, in vitro and in vivo studies with murine xenographic models. Additionally, it investigates molecular bases of adrenal insufficiency and gonadal dysgenesis using tools such as CRISP-Cas9. He has worked in research lines involving mineralocorticoid resistance, congenital hypopituitarism, precocious puberty and adiponectin, IGF1 and MR gene polymorphisms and their relationship with growth and metabolism. FAPESP thematic projects. Maintains regular research collaboration in Brazil with the Boldrini Children's Center and Endocrinology researchers at HC-FMUSP. On the international scene, she has maintained collaboration with Maria-Christina Zennaro of INSERM, Paris-France, with Constatine Stratakis (NIH) and Ursula B. Kaiser (Harvard Medical School) in the USA. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
