Eduardo Rocha is Full Professor at ICBAS - U.Porto. Integrates the team of the research center 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 course, 17/20 grade).
From 10/1987, he was a trainee in the Laboratory 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 and to date, he has performed a large variety of management tasks at ICBAS, CIIMAR and in support of U.Porto's central structures. He was a member of the Pedagogical Council for 30 consecutive years, having been President for 8 years, as well as served as director of master and PhD courses, of Laboratory and of Department. At CIIMAR, he was a member of the Directive Board for 7 years, being today the President of the General Assembly.
He is currently Director of the Laboratory of Histology and Embryology (ICBAS) and PI of the PATH Team - Histomorphology, Pathophysiology and Applied Toxicology (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 (fish and mammals), and fish toxicopathology.
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 22 masters and 12 doctoral students. Signed > 200 international publications, including > 180 articles in indexed journals and 7 book chapters. H-index (Scopus) = 28.
