Research Interests

Adriana’s PhD research involved two main themes: (1) the development and validation of novel analytical methods for reliable measurement of inorganic anions in human biofluids, based on capillary electrophoresis with UV detection (CE-UV) for clinical and epidemiological applications; and (2) the characterization of the polar/ionic metabolome in sweat from infants and identification of metabolites associated to cystic fibrosis in pre-symptomatic infants, using multisegment injection-capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (MSI-CE-MS).  

Dr. Adriana Nori de Macedo is currently an assistant professor at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
