Psychological Medicine & Psychiatry (Division of) MPhil/PhD, MD(Res)
After graduating as a psychiatrist in my hometown of Porto Alegre in Southern Brazil, I received an award from the Brazilian Research Council and moved to Sao Paulo where I completed an MPhil at the Federal University of Sao Paulo. North American Psychiatry has been the predominant influence in South American Universities, but I had been following the published research from the largest academic community devoted to the study of mental illnesses in Europe, the Institute of Psychiatry.
The funding for my PhD has come from the Education and Research Foundation for University Staff (CAPES). Now, I am developing my research expertise in the section of neurobiology of mood disorders and our purpose is to evaluate aspects of the HPA axis impairment in patients with treatment resistant depression. I wish to pursue a research career as an academic psychiatrist in a university teaching centre.
