Universidade Federal de Goiás
André C. Amaral is adjunct professor at Universidade Federal de Goias, Center East of Brazil, teaching Nanobiotechnology and Introduction to Biotechnology classes. He began his career as a research on the Biological Sciences while developed his graduation in Biology, and completed his Ph.D. at Catholic University of Brasilia, when he won the “2009 - Young Investigator Award” (FAP/DF, Distrito Federal, Brazil). He developed a postdoctoral stage at the University of Brasilia with the work plan “Technological development of amphotericin B-PLGA-DMSA nanoparticles: characterization (physical-chemical, morphology, biodistribution, and pharmacokinetics) and analysis for scaling up”.He has experience on investigating nanostructured sustained delivery systems for antifungal drugs and on the experimental murine models for fungal diseases (paracoccidioidomycosis and vaginal candidiasis) and bioprospection of new bioactve molecules. His interests are on nanostructured delivery systems, pharmaceutical technology, drug development, identification of bioactive molecules, and experimental murine models of infectious diseases.
