Alexandre Morrot is a biologist with Ph.D. in Immunology (2000, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro). He worked as an Assistant Research at New York University (2000-2003) and Johns Hopkins Univesity (2003-2006), where he developed research with focus on the characterization of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the induction of protective T-cell mediated immunity against malaria parasites. In the period of 2006-2007, he worked as Research Associate at the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases /NIH, developing projects aimed at investigating the adaptive immune mechanisms associated with the control of intracellular pathogens. Currently, he is an Associate Professor of Immunology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where he investigates the immunological mechanisms associated with changes in central and peripheral lymphoid system in infectious diseases and immunodeficiencies.
Immunological mechanisms associated with changes in central and peripheral lymphoid system in infectious diseases, with major focus in Malária, Leishmaniasis and Chagas Diseases
