Juliana Miranda Tatara
Juliana has a master's degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, acquired at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) - Brazil, where she studied the proteomic responses of Vero Cells infected by a Brazilian and an African Zika Virus strain. She started her journey as a PhD candidate in February 2023, with the supervision of Professor Dr. Gabriel Magno de Freitas Almeida and co-supervision of Professor Dr. Jônatas Abrahão (from the Federal University of Minas Gerais - Brazil). Her PhD research is focused in bioprospecting Giant Viruses in the Arctic region, and their potential biotechnological uses as antimicrobial agents.

Juliana is interested in learning more about the "virus world" while learning about other microbes, such as amoebas, bacteria and yeast. She is also interested in understanding the responses triggered by microbes infection at the molecular and cell level, including immune system responses. She looks forward to learning and aprimorating her knowledge in laboratory techniques.
