Professional Summary

Highly motivated and passionate Pharmacologist with PhD degree in Pharmacology and Masters in Neuroscience looking to expand career to the next level and bring over 10 years of experience and skills in laboratory science and research and development to an amazing employer. I obtained my Master's degree in Biological Science in 2012 and my PhD in 2015. I received two grants during my PhD from the Foundation for Research Support of the State of São Paulo. This grant contributed to my education abroad and l e a d t o m y intellectual growth as a scientist and allowed me to go to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. From there I studied as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Southern California. I consider myself humble, serious and very responsible at work. I am capable of working in a team, developing my own projects, and overcoming the problems that may arise at work. Accomplishments
