Agenda IB

Jose Luiz Proenca Modena

Since 2015, José is professor in the Department of Genetics, Evolution, Microbiology and Imunology, Institute of Biology at University of Campinas (Unicamp). Currently, he heads a Laboratory of Emerging Viruses (LEVE) where he is conducting researches about pathogenesis of Oropouche virus (OROV), Zika virus (ZIKV), Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) and the recently discovered new Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). During COVID-19 pandemics, Proença-Modena worked to mitigate the social and public health impact of this disease in the metropolitan region of Campinas, having a leading role for molecular diagnosis, scientific dissemination, and development of research that has contributed to the understanding of new epidemiological, evolutionary and pathophysiological aspects of COVID-19. He published 62 papers in indexed journals and wrote two book chapter in virology and microbiology.

Paulo Guimarães Gandra

Our primary research interest is the investigation of cellular mechanisms regulating skeletal muscle contractile activity and energy metabolism during stimulation and fatigue.
In our lab we are employing an intact single skeletal muscle fiber model that allows us to measure force generation and perform fluorescence microscopy to analyze intracellular parameters in real time during contractions at a single cell level.
Ultimately our long-term goal is to bring new information that might be used to improve muscle function and exercise capacity in different patho-physiological states.
