I am a Vet interested in the immunology of the tick-host interaction. Today we are working on a tick vaccine based on salivary antigens identified by transcriptomics, proteomics and in silico studies. I also work on the modulation of the immune response in several parasite-host interactions. As I am an assistant professor, I am a lecturer at the Nursing School and Medical School at Ribeirao Preto-SP, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. My nursing studies envolve health education programs for different parasites in schools.
