Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry by The State University of Maringá (2011) and PhD in Sciences by University of São Paulo (2017) with an interniship period at Rutgers University - New Jersey, United States (2014). Experience mainly in the field of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biophysics. Nowadays is a PosDoc Fellow at Institute of Physics, University of São Paulo. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Generating reactive oxygen species (ROS) in specific intracellular targets is the best strategy to maximize the Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) efficiency, since the short lifetime and high reactivity limited the ROS distribution inside cells. During years literature indicated mitochondria as target-organelle for PDT, however reports more recents indicate lysosomes as organelle-key to enhanc...
Photochemical Internalization (PCI) can revolutionize the drug or biomolecules delivery inside eukaryotic cells. This concept is grounded on the use of photosensitizers (PS), which localize mainly in endocytic vesicles membrane, it is photo-damaged and enable the release of lumem endocytic vesicles membrane into citosol. PCI has been risen the protocols efficiency in the cancer therapy....
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment that use of the photosensitizer (PS) and light irradiation in the appropiate wavelength, inducing the photo-oxidation of biomolecules. Porphyrins photosensitizers has been widely used in PDT due appropriate characteristics to this treatment. It is know that addition the photochemical properties, the photo-activity of this compounds depends prefe...
