He has published more than 500 articles in top peer-reviewed journals such as The Lancet, Cell, and Nature, as well as 40 review articles and book chapters. His work has been cited over 26,000 times. He has delivered more than 120 lectures around the world. He has supervised many students (9 Master’s, 40 PhD, and 40 post-doctoral fellows). Many of his former students are now professors at universities in Brazil, France, Portugal, Japan, the USA and Canada.
