Dr. Caio Cesar Floriano Luz long-term research interests involve the development of a comprehensive understanding the host microbiota and the interaction with the tumor microenvironment. His academic training and research experience have provided me with an excellent background in multiple biological disciplines including molecular biology, cancer, microbiology, biochemistry, and genetics. During my DDS training, He worked with Dr. Adriana Boeri to treating patients with special needs at a specialized University clinic. After two years of private practice in dentistry, He realized that he wanted to do more research to make a difference beyond patient care. Therefore, he pursued advanced training in oral medicine and then a master’s in Pathology. As Master’s student with Dr. Celina Oshima, he investigated the effect of expression of some biomarkers in Esophageal cancer and the prognosis on the treatment. Upon completion of my master’s he decided certainly to pursue a career in research at an academic institution, and therefore went on to complete my PhD at Federal University of Sao Paulo with Dr. Maria Teresa de Seixas Alves to develop expertise in cancer. During the doctorate he had the opportunity to go to Japan and be a fellowship for 5 months there he worked with Dr. Hiroyuki Tsuchiya, the group of professor Tsuchiya are pioneers on the treatment of osteosarcoma cells with liquid nitrogen, and they are reference in treatment using freezing technique. His work was with osteosarcoma cells, some cell genes have been silenced, and we evaluate the activity of the tumor’s cells.
