Apresentação Pessoal

Patricia Monteiro is a Research Group Leader at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (FMUP), Portugal.
She holds a BSc/MSc degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and a PhD degree in Neuroscience.

Dr. Monteiro did her Ph.D. training with Prof. Guoping Feng at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, USA), where she focused on understanding brain circuitry mechanisms underlying repetitive behaviors present in obsessive-compulsive (OCD) and autism-spectrum disorders (ASD). She published a study showing reversal of autistic-like behaviors in adult mice by restoring the Shank3 gene [Nature, 2016] and coauthored another publication showing that particular human mutations in the Shank3 gene can lead to distinct neuropsychiatric disorders [Neuron, 2016]. Before starting her own lab, she worked with Prof. Nuno Sousa at ICVS University of Minho, studying the impact of chronic stress on brain circuits under an EMBO postdoctoral fellowship.

Dr. Monteiro's lab uses electrophysiology brain recordings together with novel neuroengineering approaches to study neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders.
She is an invited junior member of the Portuguese National Academy of Sciences and an Advisory Board Member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), serving for their Scientific Exchange Grants (SEG) program.
