PhD Candidate in Cell Biology at University of São Paulo, Brazil. The main focus of my PhD project is Proteomic analysis in tumor microenvironment of cachectic patients and the role of systemic inflammation in cancer cachexia. Academic Visitor at the University of Virginia (USA, 2018) in the Microbiology, Inflammation, and Immunology department. Currently, I am academic visitor at University of Oxford in the hypoxia biology laboratory. We are studying the ways cells sense and respond to low oxygen levels, and the role that these responses play in diseases including cancer. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Cancer cachexia is a multifactorial syndrome characterized by severe weight loss accompanied by large metabolic imbalance. Although the aetiology of cachexia is unknown, it is believed that it is a result of the interaction between the host's cells and the tumour, which induces systemic inflammation. Understanding the relationship between, inflammation and tumour microenvironment is req...
Hypoxia induces dramatic proliferation of type I carotid body cells (Fielding, 2018; Hoodson, 2016, Macias, 2018). Studies made with CRE-Lox animals provided evidence that HIF-2 but not HIF-1-mediated signaling is necessary for this process (Hodson et al., 2016). Hodson, et al (2016) showed that inducible inactivation of HIF2± could decreases the ventilatory sensitivity after chronic hy...
