Pharmacist and PhD in Biological Chemistry from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Andrea Paula-Lima developed her post-doctorate at the University of Chile, where she is currently Associate Professor of the Faculty of Dentistry and Faculty of Medicine. For her professional contribution to the study of Alzheimer's disease (AD), she won the Junior Faculty Award from the AAT-ADPD 2011 (Barcelona, Spain) and in 2013 (Florence, Italy) and received distinctions from important scientific societies such as the Society for Neurosciences (USA), the National Academy of Sciences of Chile and Brazil, the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the the Royal Society. Using experimental models ranging from the in vitro to the study in patients, she is interested in elucidating and blocking the intraneuronal signaling pathways activated by beta-amyloid peptide oligomers, with emphasis on those pathways that are dependent on calcium ion as the second messenger. She is also searching for functional alterations detectable by fEEG in patients, to contribute to the early diagnosis of AD.
