João Molino - Post Doc
I studied Pharmacy at University of Campinas, Brazil. Later, I obtained my masters degree at University of São Paulo working on the purification of an adenovirus using aqueous liquid-liquid systems. Around this time, I joined a side project to work with synthetic biology on the iGEM competition (2013, 2016). I also obtained my PhD degree at University of São Paulo, with a one year internship at University of California, San Diego (UCSD), in the Mayfield’s Lab. The project aimed to develop molecular tools to foster protein expression in microalgae, focusing primarily on protein secretion strategies. Later, I joined LOTAN Agrosciences a Startup to develop crop protection active, focused on interference RNA strategy. Now, I joined the Gademann group to, hopefully, bridge molecular biology and organic synthesis on algae systems. Beyond the lab, I like to build stuff, watch videos and swim.
