Danielle Brotto

Danielle was born in Cuiabá, Brazil. One of the hottest cities in the country. She graduated in

biology and has always been passionate about research in cancer genetics. As an

undergraduate student, she was engaged in human genetics research. She then moved to the

State of São Paulo to have her Master's degree in the exciting field of epigenetics, assessing

how DNA methylation could influence the responses of cancer cells to therapy. In 2015, she

started her doctorate at the University of São Paulo. From then on, she had contact with

genomic methodologies and bioinformatics analysis, which gave her the opportunity to come

to the freezing Minneapolis to work with Dr. Venteicher's laboratory and pursue her interest in

translational oncology.
