Professor of Cell Biology Federal University of Juiz de Fora

Juiz de Fora, MG Brazil


I am an early career Assistant Professor in Brazil. My laboratory focuses on peripheral neuropathies. By using a combination of biochemical, histological, molecular and cellular biology and animal behavior techniques, we investigate (i) the interactions between neurons and Schwann cells, (ii) Schwann cells energy metabolism, and (iii) myelin abnormalities, in Leprosy neuropathy.  Our group is also engaged in studies dissecting the contribution of inflammatory cells and their mediators for axonal maintenance, degeneration and regeneration.
