Title: Experimental Overview on Heavy Flavor Production in Heavy Ion Collisions

The use of probes containing heavy quarks is one of the pillars for the study of medium formed in high energy nuclear collisions. The conceptual ideas formulated more than two decades ago, such as quark mass hierarchy of the energy that the probe lose in the media and color screening of bound heavy quarkonia states, have being challenged by the measurements performed at RHIC and LHC. A summary of the most recent experimental observations involving charm and bottom quarks in pp, pA, and AA collisions from collisions energies extending from √sNN =200 GeV to 8 TeV is presented. Finally, this manuscript also discuss possibilities of new measurements which can be at reach with increased statistics and detector upgrades.
