Aléxia Thamara Gasparin received a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences (2018) and a master’s degree in Pharmacology (2020) from the Federal University of Parana. With over five years of experience in pharmacological natural product potential studies, her research resulted in several papers published in high-impact journals in the field of Biology, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics. Microscopy Research and Development Manager at Hilab (Brazil) since 2020, she focused her research and knowledge on point-of-care test development. All innovative tests have in common the connection of optical microscopy with technological concepts like the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. During the complete blood count test (CBC) development, Aléxia actively contributed to two patent filings and published a paper in the Nature scientific journal. Intending to democratize health access, she keeps working on the development of new point-of-care tests.
