About

Intership 05/2006 – 12/2006 Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Cellular Ltd. AMPLICON- (http://www.amplicon.com.br/) Diagnostic Molecular Cell Amplicon is a laboratory specializing in clinical laboratory diagnosis of genetic and infectious diseases using techniques of molecular biology such as extracting DNA from blood, PCR, the restriction enzymes (RFLP) and real time PCR. During my training period, I was trained in all these techniques as well as participated in the optimization of new tests and the deployment of programs of quality. Teaching and Multimedia • Over the last 2 years I have been teaching biology and science in private classes and voluteer jobs at junior high school and high school. • Over the last year I have been developing the best and biggest site in portuguese on Biology and Science (www.sobiologia.com.br) for IT company Virtuous (http://www.virtuous.com.br/). At this company besides the site I have also developed teaching materials in game-based CDs and teaching films in DVD format. Languages • English – Fluency • Spanish – Fluency • Portuguese – Native
