CV Lattes

Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Física de São Carlos (IFSC)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Bachelor in Biomolecular and Physical Sciences at University of São Paulo (2015) where has developed two scientific undergraduate project in the Structural Biology Laboratory of the Physics Institute of São Carlos (LBEst / IFSC-USP), both supported by FAPESP, in which developed the ability to expression and purification of recombinant proteins, biophysical techniques and through these the determination of protein-protein interactions. In 2014, a Merit Scholar fellowship was received from University of Sao Paulo with a period of exchange at Università degli Studi di Roma - Tor Vergata. In 2019, she has finished her PhD at Physics Institute of São Carlos with the project for study of macromolecular complex interactions of selenocysteine pathway from E. coli and N. gruberi. Has experience in Biophysics and protein Biochemistry, with an emphasis on Molecular Biology and Macromolecules Crystallography. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
