André Pina, MSc, graduated in Biochemistry in 2017, at the University of Porto. During his Bachelor, he went through an Erasmus interchange period at the Stockholm University, Sweden, where he performed a traineeship under the supervision of the Professor Bengt Mannervik. Last year, he performed his master thesis at the Cancer Drug Resistance Group of i3S/IPATIMUP, under the supervision of Prof. Helena Vasconcelos. It consisted in understanding the mechanisms responsible for the release of larger EVs by multidrug resistant tumour cells. Currently he is focused in understanding the mechanism of the enzyme Pyridoxine 5’-phosphate oxidase, using computational methods.
