Performed high school School State Technical Director Antonio Prado in Campinas, with mid-level technical training in Biochemistry and obtained her Chemistry Bachelor Degree at the Chemistry Institute of the University of São Paulo. Performed in the period from 2014 to 2016 Scientific Initiation involving cellular signaling and anti-tumorigenic therapy, investigating the influence of small Rho GTPases in DNA repair damaged by ultraviolet radiation in human tumor cell lines. She began in the fall of 2016 her Ph.D. in research of small GTPases as therapeutic targets, repair and damage signaling in DNA caused by ionizing radiation and cisplatin in glioblastoma cell lines.

Glioblastoma is the most common primary brain tumor, and despite the combination of surgery with radio and chemotherapy, the prognosis is still very poor. The increase in cell proliferation and migration of these tumors is directly related to their aggressiveness, which has recently been related to the Rho GTPases pathways. Functional evidence of the RhoA roles in gliomas has been demon...
