Personal profile

Research Interests

Graduated in Biology by the University of Aveiro in 2000, Master in Cell Biology by the University of Coimbra in 2003 and PhD in Health Sciences - in Biomedical Sciences, by Universidade Católica Portuguesa in 2012.

He is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Dental Medicine of the Portuguese Catholic University (FMD-UCP) in Viseu, where he teaches Biochemistry and Physiology in the Integrated Masters in Dentistry (since 2003) and in the Degree in Biomedical Sciences (since 2009) in which he also teaches Computational Biology, Biomarkers and Molecular Mechanisms and Biomolecular Laboratories.

He is coordinator of the Master in Applied Biomedicine.

He is an integrated researcher at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Health (CIIS) where he is the scientific coordinator of the SalivaTec Laboratory.

His main research interests are the identification of salivary biomarker panels by in silico studies using bioinformatics tools developed in SalivaTec (SalivaTecDB, OralInt and SalivaPrint Toolkit) and their subsequent validation using state-of-the-art know-how and technology for identification of proteins in small volumes of saliva samples.

The scientific and pedagogical work developed was disseminated by the scientific community through book chapters, articles in international and national journals with peer review, monographs, theses and reports, bioinformatics tools, oral communications and panel communications in national and international scientific meetings.

He recently applied his research strategies to solve problems related to COVID-19, leading a research project for the diagnosis of the disease in saliva samples, which culminated in the certification of a Laboratory that currently provides services to population for SARS-CoV-2 testing.
