About me

After my PhD studies in Professor Rodrigues’ laboratory (iMed.UL, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Lisbon), under her supervision and Dr Castro’s, to investigate the changes in the apoptosis and microRNAs among morbid obese patients with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Diseases, my postdoc is being conducted under Dr. Ruas mentorship, where I pretend to unrole novel mechanisms that are involved in skeletal muscle mass and function.
