About Dr. Daniel Mucida:

Dr. Mucida received his undergraduate degree in biology, with an emphasis on biochemistry and immunology, from the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil in 2000. He received his Ph.D. jointly from the University of São Paulo and New York University in 2005.

For his work he received several awards including New Scholar Award from the Ellison Foundation, the Career Development Award from The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, the Irma T. Hirschl/Monique Weill-Caulier Trust Research Award, the Gabrielle H. Reem and Herbert J.
