After graduating in medicine and completing a neurology residency at UNICAMP, Brazil, Fernando Cendes did a postdoctoral fellowship on EEG, neuroimaging, and epilepsy at McGill University–Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, Montreal, QC, Canada from 1991–1997 and received a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from McGill University in 1997. He is currently Full Professor of Neurology and Coordinator of the epilepsy surgery program at the Department of Neurology, Medical School of the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil.

He is a member of the Diagnostic Methods Commission of the International League Against Epilepsy and Associate Editor of Epilepsia (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/(ISSN)1528-1167/homepage/EditorialBoard.html).His research is focused on Epilepsy, Neuroimaging and Clinical Neuroscience, with more than 400 full papers published in peer review journals, with 11,295 citations and an H-index of 53 according to the Web of Science.

He is currently the PI of The Brazilian Research Institute for Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (BRAINN), which is one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDC) sponsored by FAPESP (So Paulo Research Foundation http://cepid.fapesp.br/en/materia/32). This Center focuses on investigating the basic mechanisms that lead to epilepsy and stroke, combining genetics, neurobiology, pharmacology, neuroimaging, computer sciences, robotics, physics, and engineering. This research has important applications regarding prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation, and will serve as a model for better understanding normal and abnormal brain function. The driving force of this RIDC came from the need to approach these relevant and complex biological problems by combining the expertise of research groups with distinct and complementary backgrounds.
