Training and Education

1998-2004 I graduated in Biochemistry from the University of Porto, Portugal in 1996. After short training periods doing research in Stockholm and Paris I joined the Fishell lab to do my PhD in October of 1998 with a fellowship from the Gubenkian PhD program in Biology and Medicine.

During my PhD I was interested in several aspects of brain development. In my first project I studied the role of Shh in the specification of oligodendrocytes in the brain using loss and gain-of function approaches. I showed that similarly to the spinal cord Shh is able to induce the development of oligodendrocytes within the telencephalon.
