A biologist, veterinarian and biotechnologist, Tiago works at UFPel with in vitro cell sorting experiments that can aid in the fight against cancer. His diploma was awarded after the presentation of the paper “Pre-clinical trials in cancer: research and development of robust biological models and alternative screening methods” at the Symposium and Graduation of New Affiliate Members of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, held last 14 August at UFRGS (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul).
