Prof. Eduardo Tarazona Santos CV

I am graduated in Biological Sciences at the University of Bologna (Italy), Master in Biochemistry by the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and PhD in Biochemistry (UFMG) and in Biological Anthropology (University of Bologna). I was posdoc at the University of Maryland (supervisor: Sarah Tishkoff) and then at the National Cancer Institute (supervisor: Stephen Chanock), in the US. Currently, I am Associate Professor at the Department of Biology of the UFMG, where I lead the Laboratory of Human Genetic Diversity, performing research in the following topics: (1) Human genomic diversity in Latin America: evolutionary inferences and biomedical problems; (2) Genetic epidemiology of complex diseases and pharmacogenetics in Latin America, and (3) Development of bioinformatics tools for the study of genetic diversity. I was Head of the Graduate Program of Genetics at the UFMG (2010-2013). Currently, I am Head of the Department of Biology at UFMG (2016-2018) and Member of the Biological Sciences Study Section of the Minas Gerais State Agency for Research (FAPEMIG, 2016-2018).
