Dr. Victorio Bambini Junior has been working with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) since 2007 and has published seminal works related to an animal model of ASD induced by the prenatal exposure to valproate (VPA).
His current research interest are preclinical evaluations in ASD, neuroimmunology and development of animal models.

Working in academia since 2004, Dr Victorio Bambini Junior has been building his career through very competitive grants (MSc. Fellowship from Coordination of Higher Education Personnel Improvement, Ph.D. and junior postdoctoral fellowship from the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development, and a highly prestigious postdoctoral fellowship from the Carlos Chagas Filho Foundation.
He participates in characterization of the animal model of ASD induced by VPA and has been working with immune alterations found in ASD. He is author of 12 articles, 2 book chapters and 1 patent.
He is currently receiving CVs for potential PhD students and is willing to participate in collaborative projects.
It is also said that high quality Brazilian coffee is always served in his office and during meetings with him.
