- Research Grants
Bachelor's degree in biology - bachelor's degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (2009), master's degree in sciences (Biochemistry) by the Federal University of Paraná (2012)a PhD in Biological Functional and Molecular Biology from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (2016). He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the SGC-Unicamp (Structural Genomics Consortium) working with maize kinases related to drought stress. Has experience in the field of Biochemistry, with emphasis in Molecular Biology. Also has experience with molecular biology techniques, protein-protein interaction, gene expression analysis, cell culture and protein purification. In the master's degree, he developed a project evaluating the activity of NifA, a transcription activator protein of nif genes in Herbaspirillum seropedicae. In the doctoral project he worked with CD30, a marker of Hodgkin's lymphoma, identifying new protein interactions and their effect on the energetic metabolism of cancer cells.

|Protein involved in corns water stress response discovered|
Plant response to water stress has become a major focus of plant biology due to the challenges of food and energy production in the face of water scarcity and temperature increases imposed by climate change. Nowadays, most of the literature information, about 90%, is focused in few metabolic pathways, such as abiscisic acid (ABA) and jasmonic acid (JA) pathways. Although protein kinases...
Normal cells generate high amounts of ATP by metabolizing glucose completely to carbon dioxide. In contrast, rapidly growing cancer cells restrict this metabolic pathway and profit from intermediate products for the biosynthesis of cell components and to influence the microenvironment. The lower molar ATP yield is compensated by increased glucose consumption. This metabolic switch is cr...
