Bachelor's degree in Chemistry with Technology assignments at Universidade Estadual Paulista Julio de Mesquita Filho (UNESP, 1995), master's degree in Chemistry from UNESP (1998), Ph.d. in Chemistry from UNESP (2002) concluded in 2004, and post-doctorate at the Institute of Chemistry from UNESP-Araraquara-SP, still completed a post-doc in 2011, at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography-UCSD, San Diego-CA, USA under the supervision of Dr. William H. Gerwick. Currently is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ribeirão Preto (FCFRP-USP). Has experience in the field of chemistry of natural products, with emphasis on chemical, biological and biosynthetic studies of plant from Piper species (Piperaceae), red algae Rhodomelaceae family including its marine microorganisms associated, besides to apply different approaches in marine cyanobacteria. Nowadays has been studying marine organisms from Antartic, such as algae from and its associated microorganisms, besides microorganisms associated to invertebrates, from sediments besides from fumarole Antarctic water.

Red macroalgae of the Rhodomelaceae family were collected on the Costões Rochosos of the Ilha do Cardoso, coast of the State of São Paulo, where a complex of taxons was observed consisting of Bostrychia radicans f. radicans, B. radicans f. moniliforme and Bostrychia sp. The B. radicans complex was subjected to morphological and experimental studies with the aim of evaluating the vegetat...
The marine environment is considered the "cradle of life", being also a source of unique natural products that are highly complex, mostly accumulated in living organisms. In this context, the cyanobacteria are emerging as an important source of bioactive compounds. This project aims to chemical prospecting in pharmacological perspective using strains of marine cyanobacteria collected fr...
The marine environment has been recognized as an important source of biologically active secondary metabolites. In this context, the microorganisms isolated from marine algae, such as endophytic fungi have gained importance in recent decades as alternative targets for research on natural products, mainly due to the scarcity of scientific reports published so far. The Organic Chemistry L...
Among the most promising new bioactive substance sources, the natural products have been noted since the ancient civilization. However, in the last few decades, new ecological niches had gained importance becoming alternative to natural products research. In this way, the investigation and consequently the natural products knowledge concerning biosynthesis pathways developed for particu...

Natural products continue to represent the most important source of new bioactive substances, highlighting the richness of the marine environment that remains virtually untapped. In this context, cyanobacteria can be pointed out as a class of microorganisms with great pharmaceutical potential metabolites seen presenting intriguing chemical structures and potent biological activities sig...
