About Eric Cordeiro-Spinetti

  • Eric Cordeiro-Spinetti

    Undergraduate university: Federal Institute of Education Science and Technology, Rio de Janeiro (B.S. in biotechnology)
  • Master’s university: Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (M.S. in tissue biology)
  • Thesis: Investigating the roles of lysine-methyltransferases in the epigenetic regulation of cardiac and skeletal myogenesis 
  • Mentor: Scott Rothbart, Ph.D.
  • Experience: During Eric’s Bachelor’s studies, he helped develop a protocol to isolate subpopulations of mesenchymal stromal cells from human bone marrow with higher stemness than that of existing methods. In 2012, he completed an academic exchange at the University of Michigan, where he joined Professor Russell Taichman’s laboratory to study bone marrow niches for cancer, mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells. His Master’s final research project focused on establishing an in vitro model to study the interaction between osteoblasts and hematopoietic progenitors and neoplastic cells.
  • Hometown: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Hobbies: Surfing, yoga, listening to rap music, having fun with my wife and relaxing with friends
