A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Pedro Couto Oliveira

About

Pedro Oliveira graduated in Biological Engineering from University of Lisbon (Instituto Superior Técnico, IST) in 2005, worked as research assistant at University College London (2005), and completed a PhD degree in Biotechnology from IST in 2010. His doctoral thesis focused on the development of safer DNA-based biopharmaceuticals for gene therapy and DNA vaccination. Between 2008 and 2009 he worked as a PhD visiting student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Medical School. Between 2010 and 2012 he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at IST, studying events of genomic instability in human stem cells for clinical applications. Since 2013 Pedro Oliveira works as a postdoctoral Fellow at Pasteur Institute in Paris, focusing on bioinformatics and comparative genomic analyses of methylation systems. During his academic trajectory, PH Oliveira published 16 papers in international peer reviewed journals, 2 book chapters, 1 dissemination article to the general public, lead guest edited one special issue, and participated in 42 communications
