Dr. Trombetta-Lima obtained her PhD in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the lab of Prof Mari Sogayar. She is a Fulbright alumnus at the lab of Prof William Stetler-Stevenson at the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA, and was a post-doc fellow at the lab of Prof Makoto Noda in Kyoto, Japan. She moved to Groningen in 2019 to work with Dr. Amalia Dolga, Prof. Bart Eggen, Dr. Susanne Kooistra, and Dr. Inge Holtman. Currently, she specializes in brain organoids, gene editing technologies, and cellular communication with the tissue microenvironment.

Her research will contribute to the understanding of how the aged microenvironment influences the susceptibility to aging-related disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors, and diabetes.
