Dayoung Oh, Ph.D.
Dr. Oh obtained her PhD in Molecular Neuroendocrinology in 2005. Following this, she completed postdoctoral fellowships at Korea University in Dr. Jae Young Seong’s laboratory and then University of California, San Diego in Dr. Jerrold Olefsky’s laboratory in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Department of Medicine.
Vivian A. Paschoal Ph.D.
Vivian holds a PhD in physiology and biophysics from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she studied the mTOR pathway in obesity-associated macrophages.
Vivian is a dedicated scientist with laboratory experience in obesity and diabetes research with a successful record in developing, performing, and completing high quality in vitro and in vivo studies.
As a postdoctoral researcher in Oh lab, her focus is studying the role of GPCR signaling in metabolic syndrome, utilizing mouse models of diet-induced obesity and type 2 diabetes. In particular, she’s interested in the role of GPR120 in mediating anti-inflammatory responses and aging-related metabolic syndrome. Vivian is a recipient of American Diabetes Association postdoctoral fellowship (2018-2020).
In her free time, Vivian enjoys hiking, traveling and spending time with friends.
Camila O Souza, Ph.D
Camila holds a PhD in Cell Biology from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and has a strong background investigating the influence of inflammation in metabolic dysfunctions, with emphasis on fatty acids preventive role.
Camila is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at Oh lab where she’s been dedicated to unwrap the immune functions and metabolic role of GPCRs, with emphasis on GRP92. Besides being a very congenial, open-minded, dedicated person in the lab.
Outside the work place, Camila, as a good Brazilian, enjoys a barbecue with good music and watch soccer games (go Corinthians!).
