A top research university in LatAm.

The USP is involved in teaching, research and university extension in all areas of knowledge, offering a broad range of courses, and is responsible for 20% of Brazil's research output.

At USP, we collaborate with a research team specialized in Mesenchymal Stem Cells, Drug Delivery, Diabetes Mellitus, and Recombinant Growth Factors. 

A multidisciplinary, translational Cellular & Molecular Biology Center specialized in Regenerative Medicine, Diabetes, and Growth Factors. Nucel trains and recruits highly qualified scientists and technicians to act in the area of Cell and Molecular Therapy, based on basic Science centered on the molecular mechanisms of cell proliferation and differentiation control, aiming at transforming knowledge generated at the bench into products and processes which may be used both clinically by the Hospital sector, and by the productive sector for production and distributon of locally produced biopharmaceuticals for management, treatment and cure of diseases.

Meet Ana Claudia O. Carreira, PhD

Ana Claudia Oliveira Carreira works in the areas of Human and Animal Biotechnology, Anatomy, Biochemistry and Cell Therapy, with an emphasis on Molecular Biology and Cell Biology, involving analysis of stem cell secretome signaling, gene cloning, genomic editing (CRISPR-Cas9) , regulation by microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs, 3D cultivation, production of proteins in recombinant systems (bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cells, also aiming at the functionalization of biomaterials and decellularized extracellular matrices,. She is the author of several scientific articles, patents, books and materials for scientific dissemination. It operates in three major areas of human and animal research involving Regenerative Medicine, Cell Therapy and Cancer: "Production of Biopharmaceuticals in mammalian and insect cells for Tissue Regeneration, Human and Animal Health" and " Stem cells: applications in Bioengineering and Cell Therapy" and "Control of Cell Proliferation and Origin of Neoplasms".

Dr. Carreira was Franco's first research mentor, who then went on to help develop and accelerate Asclepii.
