About me

Hi there! My name is Fabricio F. Costa and i am a researcher native from Brazil living in the United States trying to find a cure for cancer and other genetic diseases…

More about me: I hold a Ph.D. from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) and University of Sao Paulo (USP) in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I also did a training for two years at Harvard University in Boston, USA. Now, I hold a position as a Research Scientist at Northwestern University and at the Ann Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, USA. I have published several peer-reviewed articles, served as a reviewer for different scientific journals and evaluated projects for European and South American funding agencies. My current interests include investigating the impact of different OMICs data in disease management. I have also interests in big data generation and analysis, especially the intersection of clinical information with genomics.

Using this blog i will write about science, technology, entrepreneurship and their impact in society and in my day-to-day life as a researcher and entrepreneur in Brazil and the United States.
