CV Lattes

After graduation as pharmacist (1966) I studied for a master's degree in Pharmacology (1968) and later for a Ph.D. in the Department of Pharmaceutical Pharmacology, Faculty of Pharmacy at Uppsala University which I defended in 1978 when professor Lars Terenius was chairmen of the department. After several years as a scientist in two major pharmaceutical companies in Sweden, Pharmacia in Uppsala (12 years) and AstraZeneca in Lund (12 years), I am continuing to work with intravital microscopy and studies on plasma leakage in postcapillary venules as induced by parasites (Trypanosoma cruzi, Leishmania chagasi) and the salivary gland homogenates of the sandfly Lutzomyia longipalpis as well as the vasoactive peptide maxadilan isolated from its salivary glands. I am also studying bacterias (Porphyromonas gingivalis) and how these species may activate the innate immune system.During the last five years (2015 -2020) I have worked with a model of Trypanosma cruzi infection of the hamster cheek pouch and developed a method in collaboration with professor Pablo Javier Blanco and his group at LNCC in Petropolis, RJ, that is quite useful for objective quantitation of T. cruzi induced angiogenesis in the hamster, Bulant et al (2017) in Microvascular Research.
