Birthplace: Brazil

Ana Claudia Oliveira Carreira has experience in areas of Human and Animal Biotechnology, Anatomy, Biochemistry and Cell Therapy, with emphasis on Molecular Biology and Cell Biology, involving analysis of stem cell secretome signaling, gene cloning, genomic editing (CRISPR-Cas9), regulation by microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs, 3D cultivation, production of proteins using different recombinant systems (bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cells, also aiming at the functionalization of biomaterials and decellularized extracellular matrices. She is author of several scientific articles, patents, books and scientific divulgation articles. She works on three major areas of human and animal research involving Regenerative Medicine, Cell Therapy and Cancer: "Production of Biopharmaceuticals in Mammalian and Insect Cells for Tissue Regeneration, Human and Animal Health" and "Stem Cells: Applications in Bioengineering and Cell Therapy" and "Control of Cell Proliferation and Origin of Neoplasms" investigating models of Placenta, Endometriosis, and Breast Cancer. She is Professor and Researcher at Federal University of ABC (Brazil), Member of the Structuring Teaching Nucleus of Biotechnology Bachelor Course (UFABC), and Professor at the Graduate Program in Anatomy of Domestic and Wild (PPGAADS) from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science at USP. Participate as Collaborating Researcher at the Cell and Molecular Therapy Group at the USP School of Medicine and the National Institute of Science and Technology in Regenerative Medicine (INCT-Regenera) and at the National Cell Therapy Network (RNTC). She has collaborations with several universities and institutes in Brazil and abroad (Ohio State University, Université de Montreal, UCSD, Children's Hospital Los Angeles/USC-University of Southern California, Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey, Universidad de La Frontera, Purdue University). It also works in the area of Science Education, organizing courses and teaching materials for the Teaching of Biotechnology and Science for students of different levels (Elementary School, High School, Undergraduate, Graduate). He graduated in Biological Sciences (Bachelor's Degree and Full Licentiate) at the Federal University of São Carlos. During graduation, she was a scholarship holder of CAPES's Special Improvement Program (PET) and was involved in several teaching, research and extension activities for the UFSCar community and the city of São Carlos. She completed her Direct Doctorate Degree in Biological Sciences (Biochemistry) at the Institute of Chemistry of the University of São Paulo, in the area of Protein Biochemistry and Heterologous Expression of Membrane Proteins. She is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of São Paulo with internships abroad.ORCid: Google Scholar: ResearchID: (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
