Birthplace: Brazil

I am a Full Professor at the Department of Psychobiology in the Universidade Federal de São Paulo. I have a degree in Biomedicine, obtained a Master's degree in Pharmacology from Escola Paulista de Medicina (1987) and Ph.D. in Psychobiology from Universidade Federal de São Paulo (1990). I spent 3.5 years in Stanford, under Dr. Seymour Levine's supervision, working on the influence of mother-pup relationship on the ontogeny of the HPA axis response to stress. Upon my return to Brazil I followed up on the long-term effects of maternal deprivation on the stress response and how disruptions of mother-infant relationship may represent a risk factor for emotional disorders. I am a Full Professor of Universidade Federal de São Paulo, and I am currently the President of the Habilitation Committee and Coordinator of the MD-PhD Program of Escola Paulista de Medicina. My expertise is in the Neuroscience field, focusing in the development of animal models of resilience and vulnerability to stress-related psychiatric disorders using early life stress. I am past president of the Brazilian Society for Neuroscience and Behavior (SBNeC - 2020-2023) and in 2023 I was elected Vice-president of SBNeC and 2nd. Vice-President of the Brazilian Federation of Societies of BExperimental Biology (FeSBE), and to participate in the Latin-America Regional Committee of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO - LARC). I am a member of the Committee of Partnerships and Collaboration of the World Women in Neuroscience (IBRO) and Alba Network (Federaion of European Neuroscience Societies - FENS).Contact e-mail: (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
