About

ABOUT António Mateus Pinheiro graduated in Applied Biology by the University of Minho and has subsequently developed his master thesis in Neuropsychiatry, under the supervision of Dr. Luísa Pinto, PhD and Prof. Nuno Sousa, MD PhD. He is currently a PhD student at the School of Health Sciences, under the supervision of Luísa Pinto, PhD, Nuno Sousa, MD, PhD and Daniel H. Geschwind, MD, PhD. The title of his PhD project is "Epigenetic orchestration of neuroplasticity in the post-natal brain." The project aims to characterize the epigenetic signatures present in the healthy brain and in the context of stress-related disorders, such as Depression. Simultaneously, he is also undergoing medical training as an MD student in the same institution. In 2012, he co-founded the ICVS spin-off Bn'ML - Behavioral and Molecular Lab. Bn'ML offers customized pre-clinical behavioral and molecular analysis services for testing the potential of new therapeutic compounds. RESEARCH INTERESTS Neuroplasticity (neurogenesis, gliogenesis, dendritic and synaptic plasticity); Neuroregeneration; Therapeutical Approaches; Genetic and epigenetic regulatory mechanisms; Animal Behavior; Science entrepreneurship CURRENT POSITION PhD Fellow (of the Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation) in the Life and Health Sciences Institute (ICVS), Neurosciences Research Domain. Research Line “Epigenetic orchestration of neuroplasticity in the post-natal brain” MD Student in the School of Health Sciences (ECS), University of Minho Associate and co-founder of Behavioral and Molecular Lab (Bn’ML) company
