Carlos Machado, M.D., Medical Illustrator
In 1992, after a highly meticulous search process by CIBA-Geigy Corporation, Dr. Machado was invited to apply and then selected for the prestigious medical illustrator position that would continue the work of the worldwide renowned Dr. Frank Netter. Since 1994 Dr. Machado has thus been a medical illustrator for the companies that hold the rights of editing Dr. Netter’s works.
In 2012 Dr. Machado joined the faculty of the Department of Cellular and Structural Biology of University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio as Adjunct Assistant Professor, and in 2013 joined the faculty of the University of Saint Augustine at Austin as assistant professor of the course Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation.
Although very often he spends over sixteen hours a day immersed in his professional work, Dr. Machado still makes time to practice Japanese and traditional Chinese calligraphy, karate, and cycling. His other interests include botany, photography, and seasonal hobbies and sports such as gardening, rock climbing, kayaking, and railroad modeling. He is married to Adriana Martins and has a 17-year-old daughter, Beatriz, who has shown to have inherited her father’s artistic talents.
Carlos A.G. Machado trained and practiced medicine as a cardiologist in Brazil, before his medical illustration talents took his career in a different direction. Through sheer luck, his skill and artistry in medical illustration came to the attention of Ciba-Geigy when they were looking for someone to continue the illustration program founded by Dr Frank H. Netter. For nineteen years Dr. Machado has contributed to the Netter collection working for the companies that hold the rights of editing Dr. Netter’s works. Dr. Machado‘s distinct concepts, techniques, and style have enabled him to independently become one of the best known medical illustrators.
