Personal profile


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 - Biomedical Sciences, by Universidade Católica Portuguesa in 2012.

He started his teaching activity at the current Faculty of Dental Medicine of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa (FMD-UCP) in Viseu in 2003. He is Associated Professor at FMD-UCP since 2013, where he teaches several Curricular Units in the Integrated Master in Dentistry and in the Degree in Biomedical Sciences, especially Biochemistry and Metabolism, Physiology, Computational Biology (formerly Bioinformatics), Biomarkers and Molecular Mechanisms (formerly Oral Biology), and Biomolecular Laboratories.

He is coordinator of the Master's in Applied Biomedicine (Computer Branch and Management Branch).

He has been president of the Pedagogical Council of the Faculty of Dental Medicine at UCP since 2020.

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 in the field of Computational Biology, for 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 the 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 has participated in several research projects with competitive funding with emphasis on the project "CovTec", of which he was principal investigator and which validated saliva tests for the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 that are available as a clinical analysis service in the Laboratory - University Dental Clinic of the Portuguese Catholic University (certified by ERS:153243). In the same line, he is responsible for the project "SPRINT - Saliva For Precision Diagnosis" to develop new saliva tests for the non-invasive and personalized diagnosis and monitoring of prevalent oral pathologies such as caries, periodontal disease and oral cancer, contributing to the practice of Precision Dentistry and the improvement of Oral Health.
