Marcelo Andrade de Lima, PhD


Marcelo Andrade de Lima, a hearted biologist and enthusiast in chemical biology, is an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry in the Molecular Biology Division at the Federal University of São Paulo and is an Honorary Research Fellow at the Institute of Integrative Biology, University of Liverpool. Marcelo received his PhD (2012) and did his post-doctoral research (2014) in Molecular Biology at the Federal University of São Paulo where he engaged in a wide range of disciplines ranging from mathematics coupled with spectroscopy to protein cloning and expression attempting to understand the relationship between structure and function of relevant biological macromolecules, especially complex carbohydrates. He is always on the quest to find new ways of looking at fine cellular structures and processes using super-resolution and CARS (Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering) microscopy by selective labeling and detection.
