From February 1996 to February 1998, he was Lecturer at the Department of Pharmacognosy, Faculdade de Farmacia, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His Master project "Phylogenetic Trends within Lamiiflorae" was sponsored by CNPq, a Brazilian Governmental Agency for 1.5 years and he got the degree after being evaluated by Dr. Otto Richard Gottlieb. His Ph.D. project "Chemical and Pharmacological Studies on Raphiodon echinus and Marsypianthes chamaedrys" was sponsored by CAPES, another Brazilian Governmental Agency. In several years he was awarded with grants from FAPERJ (Rio de Janeiro Research Supporting Agency) and FINEP in 2003 when he had the opportunity to chair the XII Italian-Latin-American Conference on Ethnomedicine. Also in 2003 he was awarded with a special grant from CNPq due to his scientific collaboration to the Brazilian Science. Fabio stepped up as a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Pharmacy, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 1998. In 2006, he started his sabbatical year in the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, TCD, where he further served as a research coordinator from 2007-2008 and now is a full time lecturer in Pharmacognosy. He acts an ad hoc reviewer for the following scientific journals: Brazilian Journal of Pharmacognosy, Brazilian Journal of Medicinal Plants, Brazilian Journal of Microbiology, Brazilian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Phytochemistry, Iheringia Zoologia (Section Botany), Phytotherapy Research, Current Medicinal Chemistry, African Journal of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Research Expertise

Description

MAJOR AREAS OF RESEARCH INTEREST AND ON-GOING INVESTIGATIONS: i) Chemical and pharmacological evaluation of species belonging to the family Rutaceae; ii) Chemical evaluation of drugs of abuse

Projects

  • Title
    • Orbignya speciosa (Arecacea) as a potencial source of novel therapeutic agents: from traditional medicine information to the pharmacological evaluation of its chemical constituents.
  • Summary
    • The aim of this project is to check the validity of the ethnopharmacological information for Orbignya speciosa in folk medicine. This plant is used, among other purposes, for the treatment of leukaemia and inflammatory conditions. Using modern techniques of isolation and purification of natural products and up-to-date spectroscopy techniques we aim to isolate the constituents responsible for such activities. It is also intended to test the activity for the extracts and isolates using in vivo (mice) and in vitro (cell culture) methodologies, allied to techniques in molecular pharmacology: DNA-fragmentation, electrophoresis, zymography, western-blot, apoptosis studies (flow cytometry), microscopy (SEM) among others.
