Dr. Marcelo Biondaro Góis earned his B.Sc. in 2008 from the University Paranaense, Brazil. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2015 from the Biological Sciences, State University of Maringá. From 2015 to 2016, he trained as a postdoctoral in Biosciences and Pathophysiology at State University of Maringá. In 2016, he was appointed at the adjunct professor level in medicine, Morphology and Embryology at the Federal University of Recôncavo da Bahia. He is a member of the Brazilian Society of Anatomy and Pan American Association of Anatomy. Has experience in cell biology and parasitic diseases, focusing on the relationship with the enteric nervous system (ENS), neurogastroenterology, immunology of the intestinal mucosa and experimental pathology. He is reviewer of several peer-reviewed journals, including International Journal of Experimental Pathology, Arquivos de Mudi, Journal of Infection and Public Health, and Pathology, Research and Practice. In addition, is Editorial Board Member of Austin Pathology.
His main research line is focused on neurogastroenterology and protozoonoses through studying the response of the enteric nervous system to the different parasitic infections, especially those caused by Toxoplasma gondii, Trypanosoma cruzi, Leishmania spp. His research group seeks to understand the relationship between the development and persistence of the intestinal inflammatory response after infection.
