Undergraduate studies in Biomedicine at the Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (Uni-Rio) (1988), masters in biophysics at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (1992) e PhD obtained from The Weizmann Institute Of Science (1998). Pos-doctoral studies at Stanford University (2005-2009). Young Investigator (FAPESP) at the Heart Institue (InCor/ HCFMUSP) at the Laboratory of de Genetics and Molecular Cardiology. Has experience in biochemistry, emphasis in molecular and celular biology, working mainly with: signal transduction, proteomics, rational design of farmacological peptide modulators of protein-protein interactions and of conformational antibodies. . Atualmente é profa. Currently Associate Professor of the Chemistry Institute, Department of Biochemistry of the University of São Paulo, working on signaling pathways related to pain. The main goal of the laboratory is to study signal transduction pathways involved in embriogenesis of the pain pathway, and in the transmission of signals of pain transmitted by nerve growth factor, NGF, activating the kinase TrkA, and the role of the kinase PKMzeta in synaptic remodeling and in chronic pain.
