About me
Since 2000 I have been working with research on central nervous system substances, mainly plants derivatives (Hypericum spp, Kava spp, Passiflora spp.).
    I have exceptional animal handle and breeding skills, besides that I have standardized video-tracking procedures for different behavioral experiments. I am experienced in developing protocols for mechanism of action research, both in vivo and in vitro.
    Currently I am a post-doctoral fellow at the Pharmacology Department from Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina. This project focuses on the study of signaling pathways that integrate the immunological and the nervous systems, in illnesses as cystitis, irritable bowel disease and depression. I also have a collaborative work on the development of animal model for Parkinson’s disease using MPTP.
  My goal is to find a job on research and development in a pharmaceutical industry
