  • Role: Lab Manager & Research Associate

“Football unites Brazil and is an important part of who I am as a Brazilian.”

Lucas, a dedicated researcher, embarked on his journey with ROH in 2022. For him, the Dubrowsky Regenerative Medicine Laboratory at ROH is not just a workplace; it’s a peaceful sanctuary nestled in the heart of theatres—a researchers’ dream come true.

Managing a lab and office in tandem is a unique opportunity that Lucas enjoys. It allows him to explore the intricate world of research while being near the bustling theatres. As he settles into his role, Lucas is eager to get more involved in staff networks, fostering connections and sharing experiences.

While contemplating how to represent his multifaceted Brazilian culture for this exhibition, Lucas found the perfect unifier—football. In Brazil, football transcends borders, uniting people from diverse backgrounds. It’s not just a sport, but a way of life - teaching vital life skills and the importance of grace in both victory and defeat. For Lucas, football embodies the essence of Brazilian culture and the bonds it creates.
