What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I’m a fifth year medical student at the University of São Paulo. My main interests are rheumatology, genetics, bioinformatics and tissue engineering. I’m currently working on evaluating the integrity of the extracellular matrix in decellularized tracheas and analysing the expression profiles of cells which repopulate them.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I’m pretty passionate about open science and developed an interest about preprints while engaging with the ASAPbio preprint crowd review. By joining the ASAPbio Fellows program, I would like to learn more about preprints, publishing, peer review and engage with the community in projects that promote good practices. As a junior researcher, these topics will be very important in my career.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I’m very interested in the challenges faced in the dipersion of scientific knowledge and excited about the possibilities that things such as preprints present to the current state of the art.
Ask me about….
Tabletop RPGs, minerals, watches and raccoons.
