Federal University of Santa Catarina
Graduated in Pharmacy at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, PhD in Sciences at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He is currently professor at the Federal University of Santa Catarina and coordinates the Stem Cell and Bioengineering Laboratory. The Laboratory investigates the role of mesenchymal stem cells in the repair of neural injury as well as bone regeneration. Three-dimensional scaffolds for cultivation and maintenance of mesenchymal stem cells are one of the lines of research of the Stem Cell and Bioengineering Laboratory. The Laboratory also investigates how mesenchymal stem cells can act as support for the ex vivo expansion of hematopoietic stem cells. The Stem Cell and Bioengineering Laboratory evaluates how amplification of hematopoietic stem cell can target allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
