Post-doctor fellow at Dr. Rui Curi laboratory from University of São Paulo focusing on obesity epigenetics (2010-2015). Post-doctor fellow at Dr. J. Alfredo Martínez laboratory from Universidad de Navarra ? Spain focusing on obesity nutrigenomics (2012). She is a professor from Universidade Estadual de Goiás. Her research area aims to investigate the human physiopathology diseases and treatment strategies. The focus is on food and drugs effects on epigenetic and toxicology mechanisms. Has experience in animal diseases models acting on the following subjects: obesity, high-fat diet, genotoxicidade and DNA metylation. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The epigenetic mechanisms are modulated by environmental factors that can alter the individual phenotype. One explanation for the increase in obesity may be associated with changes in these mechanisms. Experimental studies in animals and clinical trials in humans show changes in DNA methylation resulting from obesity. In addition to the beneficial effects on lipid profile, fish oil is r...
