Apresentação Pessoal

Full Professor at ICBAS - U.Porto. Integrates the team of the research centre CIIMAR. His academic training was done at ICBAS, where he graduated in Aquatic Sciences (18/20 grade, Eng. António Almeida Foundation Award), and was approved in Proofs of Pedagogical Aptitude and Scientific Capacity (Histology and Embryology), PhD (Biomedical Sciences) and Habilitation (Histology and Embryology). Attended the subjects of the 1st to 3rd year of Medicine (pre-Bologna, 17/20 grade).

From 10/1987, he was a trainee in the Lab of Cell Biology (mentor: Prof. Carlos Azevedo), having been a research fellow of the former INIC (1989). He began a formal teaching activity on 12/1989 as a Monitor of Cell Biology (mentor: Prof. Carlos Azevedo) and was hired as a Trainee Assistant for Histology and Embryology (mentor: Prof. Rogério Monteiro) in 1991 after a public contest. He reached the top of his academic career on 12/2008.

Since 1991, he has performed management tasks at ICBAS, CIIMAR and in support of U.Porto's central structures.

At CIIMAR, he was a member of the Directive Board for 7 years, being the President of the General Assembly.

He is currently the Director of the Lab of Histology and Embryology (ICBAS) and PI of the Animal Morphology and Toxicology Team (CIIMAR). His current pedagogical activity includes courses in histology and human and comparative embryology, methods of investigation and communication, exposure and fate of xenobiotics in the body, and toxicopathology (aquatic animals).

As for research, his topics of interest are: the comparative microanatomy of the liver and hepatocellular dynamics; exposure, mechanisms and effects of endocrine disrupters, especially in the liver and gonads of fish; structural and functional regulation of hepatocellularity, hepatic peroxisomes and lipid pathways by sex steroids and PPAR ligands; cytotoxic activity of natural compounds of marine origin (fungi and algae) on neoplastic cells; and the modulation of hepatocarcinogenesis by sexual steroids.

Supervised/cosupervised 28 masters and 12 doctoral students. Signed > 250 international publications, including > 200 articles in indexed journals and 7 book chapters. h-index (Scopus) = 38.
