This project will use methodologies for the detection of oxidative stress and neurodegeneration biomarkers in cultured cells, such as detection and quantification of the oxidation of proteins, lipids and DNA.For this purpose, oxidative stress are generated by hydrogen peroxide incubation and neurodegenerative stress by beta-amyloid peptides in cell culture, respectively. The result of the project will integrate the map of cellular biomarkers for the differentiation of these types of stresses, in progress in the laboratory. The student has already started her work in the lab as a voluntary and demonstrated excellent development and maturity.
