Birthplace: Brazil

Chemistry from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (1981), Master in Biophysics, UFRJ (1987), and Doctorate in Biophysics, (1990) UFRJ with sandwich Doctorate and internships: Whitehead Institute, MIT in Boston (USA), University of Pacific, California (USA). Post-doctorate: King's College (England) and Babraham Institute in Cambridge (England) and at the National Institute of Bioscience and Human Technology in Tsukuba (Japan). Full Professor at USP (from 2001) and the Department of Clinical and Toxicological Analysis - FCF- University of São Paulo (2018-). Visiting Professor in the Department of Pathology, NYU (New York University), New York, USA (2004-2005) Adjunct Professor at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey University (USA). Our research aims to investigate how chemical signals in the host-pathogen relationship modulate the malaria parasite cycle. The laboratory's main research lines include Screening of synthetic and natural compounds with a focus on the development of new drugs for the treatment of malaria. Membrane receptors of the GPCR (G protein-coupled receptor) type make up about 50% of the drug target in the pharmaceutical industry. We investigated Plasmodium falciparum GPCRs using a high throughput screening and cell imaging approach. For her work in malaria, she is a Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, a speaker at several international and national congresses. Associate Editor of Current Research in Microbial Sciences and a member of the editorial board of the journals: Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, Methods X, Current Opinion in Microbiology, Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry, Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences. Member of the CNPq editorial committee (2013-2018). Consultant to several national and international agencies: Welcome Trust, European Research Council, US-Israel Binational Science Foundation, Medical Research Council, Ministry of Science and Technology (MCT) in Portugal (2000 to 2002). Prof. Garcia coordinated the USP Research Center (NUSCEP) Cell signaling in the pathogen-host interaction (2012-2018). She is a full member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences (2018), the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS - 2020), and the São Paulo State Academy (ACIESP) (2020). Fellow of the American Society for Cell Biology. President of the International Affairs Committee of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and advisor and collaborator of the Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of São Paulo (2019-).
