Graduation in Biophysics by Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil in 2010. Msc in Biomedical Chemistry (2013) and PhD in 2017 by UFRJ. In addition, Postdoc Researcher at UFRJ for 18 months (2017-2019). Currently, I am a Research Fellow at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. I have an experience in neurobiology celular and biochemistry, with emphasis in immune system, neuroinflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction in Alzheimer's Disease. Further, I had been working in the neuroprotective effects of Liraglutide, an antidiabetic agent, in Alzheimer's Disease models. Now, during my stay at Harvard Medical School, I am investigating the role of complement system and synaptic plasticity in Alzheimer's Disease models.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
