    I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I came to the U.S. for Residency and Fellowship training in Pediatric Pulmonology with the goal of becoming a physician scientist. My passion is Cystic Fibrosis. I enjoy taking care of these complex children and I am fascinated by the science behind the consequences of this defective chloride channel. The fact that we still don’t have a cure for this disease and that there are nearly 2,000 different mutations producing a wide range of clinical presentations are my biggest motivation to work in this field. I hope to make contributions to improve the lives of people with this disease and I hope I can one day say CF stands for Cure Found! My major areas of research interest are predicting clinical outcomes in children with a positive newborn screening for Cystic Fibrosis.
    a. Retrospective study based on the California database.
    b. Hierarchical modeling of clinical prediction.
    c. Developing a Sweat Rate test for infants for more accurately diagnose CF and predict clinical outcome.
