Research Interest: I am interested in discovering infarct genes that are naturally occurring allelic variations that modulate infarct volume via a vascular dependent and independent manner. In my masters and doctoral degree, I worked in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG-Brazil) and studied the effects of molecules on revascularization mechanisms (angiogeneses, arteriogenesis, vasculogenesis) in the hindlimb ischemia model.

Personal Interests: Literature, Soccer, Cinema, Sports.
