About

Jorge Oliveira Currently working as a Senior Molecular Geneticist at the Centre for Preventive and Predictive Genetics (CGPP), IBMC, i3S, University of Porto. He implemented the genetic characterization of congenital muscle diseases (congenital myopathies and congenital muscular dystrophies) on a national basis, at the former Institute of Medical Genetics (IGM) Dr. Jacinto Magalhães, later integrated into the "Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto". As for research, his main interests are the genetic basis and mutational spectrum of hereditary myopathies. He is currently applying massively parallel sequencing technology (gene panels and whole-exome sequencing) to identify new genetic causes for these myopathies. Overall, he conducted 15 invited lectures and 8 oral presentations, published 27 articles (16 as the first author) in peer-reviewed journals. He participated in several congresses and scientific meetings, where 65 posters (24 as the first or last author) were presented. He received 2 grants and 4 scientific awards. He developed and maintains four internationally recognized locus-specific databases.
