Ana Carolina Luchiari, a biologist with a keen interest in fish and alcohol, holds a master’s in biological sciences from UNESP and a Ph.D. from the University of Jyvaskyla in Finland. She furthered her studies with a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto, Canada, in 2014. Currently, Ana Luchiari is researching the behavior and physiology of a species of fish known as zebrafish. Her research focuses on the impact of drugs on these creatures. Given the significant genetic similarity between zebrafish and humans, Ana aims to investigate how the inherent characteristics of these fish influence their interaction with alcohol. This research is pivotal in enhancing treatments for drug addiction and gaining a deeper understanding of the hereditary mechanisms underlying addiction.
