Dr Caroline Quiles PhD is a Biomedical with scientific experience in clinical and experimental fields, who has made important academic contributions over the course of six years working in the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences areas through projects developed in the Chronobiology and Sleep Laboratory of the Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre (HCPA/UFRGS).
Among the main subjects developed are the influence of light on activity and rest, melatonin synthesis, metabolism, anxiety, major depressive disorder, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and biological rhythms. In collaboration with the Luxion company, Dr Caroline worked on developing a lighting system better suited to biological demands and regulation of the sleep/wake cycle.
Following the thematic of melatonin and the melatonergic system, Dr Caroline continued her scientific contribution over five years of work in the Physiology field, working on several projects about the HPA axis (Hypothalamus-Pineal-Adrenal), cancer, neuromodulation and immunology, at the Laboratory of Chronopharmacology at the University of São Paulo (IB/USP).
The main subject of study was the characterization of the melatonergic system in urothelial tumours and the influence of melatonin receptors on the proliferation of cells of different cancer types.

- Bachelor of Food Engineering at the University of Campinas/ Brazil and a one-year scholarship at the Technical University of Munich/ Germany
“To solve a problem, global vision and multifactorial understanding are necessary. Therefore, in addition to expertise, one should seek multidisciplinary thinking connected with science and reality” – Dr Anny Manrich, PhD.
Dr Anny Manrich’s Experience Joining the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation, as soon as she completed her doctorate,
Dr Anny Manrich has worked on several projects, including the more than three-year partnership project with BRF, a major food producer in Brazil. As a postdoctoral fellow.
Dr Anny Manrich has also contributed to several business consultancies and research projects of the National Nanotechnology Laboratory System in areas such as food technology, fibres, films and coatings and Nanotechnology; in a very determined way, having a great team relationship, being creative and committed.
Growing concerns about the safe introduction of nanomaterials into today’s life emphasises the need to create regulatory documentation in front of characterising, using and testing them. Dr Anny Manrich worked for two years on a characterization project for nanoscale materials, with the aim of exploring their possible health effects.
Despite not having specific academic training in packaging or polymeric films, Dr Anny Manrich works at the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation in areas of edible and biodegradable films produced from agricultural waste and in the development of films with greater resistance to water, having articles published in renowned scientific journals, which demonstrates her multidisciplinary understanding and creativity.
In addition, she worked for four years as a consultant to a food company to develop a line of snacks that are healthy and that add functional ingredients, physiologically active compounds that bring health benefits, made from fruits and vegetables, enabling diet improvement, disease prevention and reduction of nutritional deficiencies.
