Agenda IB

Danilo Ciccone Miguel

My main interest in basic research is focused on understanding the mechanisms that allow Leishmania to survive in the intracellular environment. In our Lab, we also study the efficacy of several compounds aiming at the discovery of novel/repurposed drugs for leishmaniasis treatment.…

Ana Paula Couto Davel

Our primary research focus is to understand functional and molecular mechanism underlying vascular complications on cardiovascular and metabolic diseases such as obesity, undernutrition and dyslipidemias. The laboratory uses in vivo and in vitro experimental approaches including blood pressure measurement, the study of vascular function and structure, and biochemical and molecular biology methods.

Andre Rinaldo Senna Garraffoni

Our research aims to study zoological taxa, such as Gastrotricha, Tardigrada, Kinorhyncha and Rotifera (also know as lesser-known protostome taxa) in oder to better understand the distinct evolutionary and biogeographical aspects of these freshwater and marine meiofauna organisms. Our ideia is integrate the distinct dimensions of meiofauna biodiversity - genetics, function, and phylogeny -based on in a broad framework that permits us to explore taxonomy, biogeography, molecular biology and evolutionary history
