Birthplace: Brazil

Biologist, with master's degree in Virology and PhD in Molecular Biology, both from the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP). She did two postdoctoral fellows in Brazil, one at School of Medicine (Cell Biology) and another at School of Veterinary Medicine (Cell Biology and Cell Therapy), both from University of São Paulo. Additionaly, she did a sabbatical postdoctoral fellowship in Neuroscience at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). She is currently an Associate Professor at the Biomedical Sciences Institute of the University of São Paulo, teaching Embryology, Genetics and Microbiology. As a research line, she investigates the mechanisms of genetic and infectious diseases that affect the CNS, using disease modeling from human iPSC cells, with the main targets being Autism and Congenital Syndrome caused by the Zika virus. Among her projects at the Laboratory of Disease Modeling at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences at USP, Dr. Patrícia is responsible for the "The Tooth Fairy Project", a Brazilian initiative that uses stem cells from the teeth of autistic children to study the mechanisms involved in Autism. Her group was responsible for proving the causal relationship of the Zika virus with microcephaly using cerebral organoids and animal models. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
