Aline Bomfim Vieira, DVM, Msc, PhD
Dr. Aline Vieira is Assistant Professor and course coordinator of Veterinary Physiology I at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine since 2016. She is originally from Brazil where she received her DVM degree in 1999 from the Federal Fluminense University (UFF). She then completed a Residency in Small Animal Medicine at the Londrina State University and a Master of Science in Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Federal Fluminense University, Brazil. From 2009-2013 she performed her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, Brazil. In 2013, she was awarded with a governmental scholarship to perform a Post-Doctoral training at the University of Queensland in Australia. Back to Brazil, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 2015-2016.
Dr. Vieira is passionate for teaching and have been a lecturer in the field of physiology, endocrinology and metabolism since 2007. She is also an active researcher and her interests include endocrine physiology and endocrine/metabolic diseases.
