My research involves understanding the mechanisms that regulate the maintenance of neural and glioma stem cell populations, specifically the cues that allow a switch from proliferation towards differentiation and tissue commitment. I am currently investigating the role of the protein lectin Galectin-3 and the scaffold protein RASSF1A in this process. We hope to understand whether these protein pathways can be targeted to combat the glioma stem cell pool, which impairs response to treatment.

I graduated from Universidade Estadual Paulista in Brazil (2014) with a major in Biology. I then obtained my Masters in oncology (2016) working at A.C.Camargo Cancer Center with pathways involved in glioblastoma growth.
