Diego Demarco has been an Associate Professor in the Department of Botany at the Institute of Biosciences of the University of São Paulo since 2010 and researches Plant Anatomy. He graduated in Biological Sciences in 2002 from the State University of Campinas and completed his Master’s (2005) and Doctorate (2008) degrees at the same university. The study of the development of flowers, organs and secretory structures is one of his main lines of research, carried out through morphological and anatomical analyses under light and electron microscopies. Common and cutting-edge techniques are used in search of answers to the mode of formation and differentiation of cells and tissues during plant ontogeny. Through his studies, he seeks to comprehend the intrinsic factors linked to the development as well as the evolutionary factors and phylogenetic relationships involved in the emergence of the various characters and their morphological variations.
