Nádia Rei, PhD, is an Invited Assistant at FMD-UCP, and an Integrated Researcher at CIIS-Viseu.

Nádia Rei concluded a degree in Microbial Biology and Genetics at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon (2007), a master’s degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon (2008) and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences, specialty in Neurosciences at Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon (FMUL, 2020). Her research interests are in the field of Health and Biomedical Sciences, particularly on Neurosciences. She developed research activities on neurodegenerative diseases, namely Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). During her PhD she performed a detailed characterization of the neuromodulatory dysfunction in the SOD1G93A mouse model of ALS, across disease progression, to better understand the role it plays in the neurodegenerative process. Later she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Experimental Epilepsy Group in Epilepsy Center, Lund University Sweden, where she was developing a novel approach to treat chronic epilepsy through gene therapy. More recently, she worked as postdoctoral researcher at Experimental and Computational Biology Group in NMS in Lisbon, where she was assisting in the development of a clinical test to detect malignant pleural effusion. She published several papers in international journals and presented her work in several national and international conferences (h-index 7).
