Under the orientation of professor Dr. Eduardo Sequerra, I study the behavior and embryonic devenlopment of the Rivulidae Kryptolebias hermaphroditus

Our group studies how the central nervous system forms. We study phenomena, at the tissue, cell and molecular levels that take a group of cells in the embryo to organize into a complex brain and spinal cord. It also interests us to understand how the environment shapes the final product and generate diseases.
