Undergraduate in Chemistry (1997) from the University of São Paulo, Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry (2003) from the University of São Paulo and post-doctorate affiliate from 2003 to 2006 at University of São Paulo. Currently, is an associate inorganic chemistry lecturer (associate professor level III) at the Department of Chemistry of the Institute of Environmental, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences from Federal University of São Paulo. Coordinator of the Functional Lamellar and Mesoporous Solids Research Group of the Hybrid Materials Laboratory, where develops the research activities related to the synthesis and chemical modification of micro- and mesoporous inorganic solids for the production of hybrid and composite materials at micro- and nanometric scales for biomedical and agricultural applications related to adsorption of bioactive substances, controlled release, and production of vectors and nanocarriers for intracellular therapies. International experience involved with the development of joint research projects funding by Brazilian and international agencies. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Intracellular therapies require the use of nanocarriers to transport, protect and control the release of the therapeutic species inside the cells. These nanocarriers are captured by the cells through endocytosis and are initially trapped into compartments called endosomes. This organelle is responsible for the digestion of the captured material and it is also the target site for many tr...
