Vivian Alonso Goulart joined the Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU), MG, Brazil in 2011 as an Associate Professor of Biotechnology. Prior to joining UFU, she was an Associate Professor and Director of Veterinary Medicine at Rio Verde University, GO, Brazil. Professor Vivian received her B.S. degree in Veterinary Medicine (1992) at Federal University of Goiás, GO, Brazil, M.S. degree and Ph.D. in Genetics Molecular (1998, 2001), at Federal University of Uberlândia. She is also a member of a well-established multiuser research laboratory (Nanobiotechnology) in Brazil since 1996, and her research also focus on Phage Display and Cell SELEX approaches for biomolecules’ discovery, seeking bioactive peptides or nucleic acids and combinatorial antibody fragments for therapeutics, Beside that, she worked with mesenchymal stem cell and nanoparticles applied to regenerative medicine. Professor Vivian had experience in many different fields, including sequencing, real-time PCR, phage display, cell-SELEX, immunological assays (flow cytometry), microbiology, cell biology, 3D cell culture by magnetic levitation, tissue analysis by immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, and many other technologies.
