Scientific Researcher at Institute for Education and Research - Albert Einstein Hospital, with great expertise in Human Genetics, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells, Neuroscience, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Exome and Transcriptome bioinformatic analysis and gene editing (CRISPR).
PhD in Genetics from the Institute of Biosciences - USP, having a Bachelor's degree (2005) and a Licentiate's Degree (2007) in Biological Sciences by the same institution. I have experience in the field of Human Genetics, working since 2004 on researches related to the Genetics of Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as on the genetic counseling of these families. During my training, particularly during interships at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) and at the Institute for Stem Cell Therapy and Exploration of Monogenic Diseases (I-Stem) - France, I had the opportunity to become specialized in the cellular reprogramming technique, later transferring this technology to the Center for Human Genome and Stem Cell Research at USP and the Institute for Education and Research at Albert Einstein Hospital. Currently, I coordinate a project related to the identification of molecular biomarkers for autism and intellectual deficinecy and I also participate in a project using CRISPR for gene therapy for sickle cell anemia.
