Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP). Campus São Paulo. Escola Paulista de Medicina (EPM)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Egito

She had a degree in Medicine from the Federal University of São Paulo (1977), a master's degree from the Federal University of São Paulo (1982) and a doctorate in Gastroenterology from the Federal University of São Paulo (1985). She developed Free Teaching in 2002. She is currently an Associate Professor at the Federal University of São Paulo, coordinator of the Gastrointestinal Oncology Sector and member of the. Oncology working group (GTO) at UNIFESP. She acts as advisor for graduate programs in Gastroenterology and Translational Medicine and in the teaching of gastrointestinal cancer to students, residents and fellows. Its line of research is: Neoplasms of the Digestive System with two main aspects, biomarkers of diagnosis and prognosis and nutrition and cancer. She worked in the study of serum markers such as CEA and CA19-9, in the study of polymorphic variants that may increase the risk of cancer or indicate a worse prognosis. Non-invasive methods of diagnosing cancer by blood tests or feces with research on genetic and epigenetic changes in the genes involved in carcinogenesis had been done. More recently, she investigates changes in lipids and peptides in patients with colorectal and gastric cancer as well as markers of response to chemotherapy. In nutrition and cancer, she participates in the research of more sensitive methods of nutritional assessment, in the study of sarcopenia and hormones involved in cachexia. In experimental studies, she evaluated the influence of some nutrients on carcinogenesis. Therapeutic response to drugs after siRNA silencing (cell culture study) was also investigated. Quality of life of the patient and his caregivers, patient compliance with chemotherapy were also studied. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
