Wanderley de Souza was born in 1951 in Iguaí, Bahia. Ishmael son de Souza and Arani Santos Souza, is married to Marlene Benchimol teacher with whom he has three children. He attended primary and secondary courses Iguaí when aroused interest in Biological Sciences. Scientific course was held in the part of Bahia Central College in Salvador and finalized in Modern Brazilian Association of Education in Rio de Janeiro. He joined in 1969 at the Faculty of Medicine of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and from the first year started scientific initiation stage with CNPq scholarship guided by Hertha Meyer and Cezar Antonio Elias. Since then he devoted himself to the study of the Organization Cellular Pathogenic Protozoa. He finished medical school in 1974 and immediately joined the course graduate of the Biophysics Institute of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. In 1976 he defended the "Ultra-structural study of Microtubules in theory Trypanosoma cruzi and Herpetomonas sp . " In 1978 he defended the doctoral thesis "Study Ultra-structural, cytochemical and freeze-fracture of the Cell Surface Trypanosoma cruzi ". Both theses were guided by Hertha Meyer. He never held a formal post-doctoral opting for short periods in Adolfo Martinez-Palomo laboratories of the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico, Keith Porter at the University of Colorado, Keith Vikerman at the University of Glasgow and John Heuser at Washington University, St. Louis, USA.
