I graduated in Chemistry, Master and Doctorate in Biochemistry in the University of São Paulo, and was postdoctoral fellow in the University of Washington working on gene therapy. I was a professor of biochemistry in the Unesp between 1988-1996 and since 1996 I am a professor of Biophysics in the Escola Paulista de Medicina - Unifesp. Currently, I am a full professor of this university. I was co-founder of the Interdisciplinary center for Gene Therapy (CINTERGEN) in 2004 in the Unifesp, and had been director of this center since its foundation until 2010. The name CINTERGEN was changed to CTCMol.
