Master’s Student – Biochemistry


Scientific Interests

My academic trajectory started in Araranguá City (southern Brazil), studying Physiotherapy. However, in the second year of my major degree, I experienced what science is and how it is capable of changing people’s lives. As an undergraduate researcher, I experienced the study of some animal models of autoimmunity diseases and a little of the neuroscience universe. Being able to bring some of the bench experience to human translational research has always been my wish. Focusing on that, I joined the Department of Biochemistry at UFRGS in June 2023 as a master’s student, moving to Porto Alegre City to start this new project. I started following the study of the development of neurodegenerative diseases. From this experience, I started my research project, which aims to characterize the profile of neuronal, glial, and peripheral immune cells in transgenic animal models of Alzheimer’s disease and translate with human patients.

Non-Science Biography 

I am a researcher who truly believes that we should not just study, but also live neuroscience. So, my life is based on well sleep and eat healthy, with some exercise practice. I love what I do, being with friends and taking time with my pets. I am a mother of three beautiful cats named Luna, Solara, and Sophie. Moving to Porto Alegre brought me some of the best experiences of my life. I enjoy going to parks, coffee shops and appreciating the city lifestyle. I dream of being able to transmit some of that love for science to the outside world, in addition to being able to transform people’s lives through what I do.
