Vinícius Bassaneze

Short Bio

Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences in Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP / EPM; 2002-2005). Masters of Sciences in Molecular Biology in the same University (2006-2008). Received PhD in Medical Sciences from the University of São Paulo (USP; 2008-2012). Is performing post-doc at Heart Institute - InCor (HC/FMUSP), has currently published ten articles and is a co-inventor on one patent owned by USP regarding aptamers application for mesenchymal cells. Works in the field of cardiovascular research with emphasis on the study of cardiac regeneration. Is interested on stem cells, progenitor cells, pluripotent stem cells, cardiomyocytes proliferation, surface markers and cell phenotyping.

Line of Investigation

  • Characterization of the influence of shear stress on the differentiation of mesenchymal cells from adipose tissue into endothelial cells
  • Reprogramming mesenchymal cells derived from adipose tissue into induced pluripotent stem cells through TAT fusion protein system
  • Identification and Isolation of cardiac progenitor cells Using Aptamers

Formal Education/Degree

  • PhD in Medical Sciences - University of São Paulo, USP, Brasil.
  • Master in Sciences in Molecular Biology - Federal University of São Paulo, UNIFESP, Brasil.
