"Tropical Diseases and Toxinology are neglected areas in international science. Therefore, we must have research models that are efficient, cheaper and applicable to our patients. At Cevap, we believe that natural toxins comprise fascinating alternative models that are innovating the development of new drugs to treat animal and human diseases."
Dr. Benedito Barraviera is a researcher at the Center for the Study of Venoms and Venomous Animals (Cevap) and full professor of the Department of Tropical Diseases of Botucatu Medical School, both at São Paulo State University (Unesp), Brazil.
The Center for the Study of Venoms and Venomous Animals (Cevap) was established in 1989 and became an official São Paulo State University (Unesp) research unit in 1993. Cevap's mission is to provide world class expertise on venomous animals, their toxins and the derivatives. Its objectives include:
- the extraction of toxins to develop experimental research, immunobiological products and clinical trials
- to develop biotechnological study of animal toxins
- administering traditional or long-distance graduate and specialization courses
