Full Professor at the Department of Pharmacology, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of São Paulo, with subsidiary professorship at the Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo (FMUSP). Along the past 25 years our research has been related to the study of oligopeptidases and intracellular peptides. Our main objective is the advancement of knowledge. We are always focus to provide new options for pharmacological treatments for type 2 diabetes, obesity and overweight, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Together with the Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo (FMUSP) we are evaluating changes in the content of intracellular peptides in human diseases, such as during the infection by the new SARS-CoV-2 (covid-19); these changes may reveal new therapeutic targets, new forms of treatment, as well as new forms of molecular prognosis and diagnosis. Among the radical (non-incremental) innovations already achieved are the identification of several new molecules of pharmacological interest that were initially characterized in our laboratory, including hemopressins (with metabolic, analgesic and antiepileptic activity) and NFKF peptide (with potent anti-neurodegenerative and anti-epileptic pharmacological activity) (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
