About

Nuno Dinis Alves (PhD) is a research fellow at the Neuroscience Research Domain in the Life and Health Sciences Research Institute (ICVS), University of Minho (Portugal). He is graduated in Biochemistry (2009) by the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD, Vila Real) and Master in Cellular and Molecular Biology (2011) by the University of Coimbra. Nuno Dinis Alves has developed his master thesis in the department of Neuroscience of the Janssen Pharmaceutica (Belgium). Nuno is currently interested in the understanding the mechanisms behind the persistent effects of depression. Moreover, his is focus on the involvement of adult hippocampal neurogenesis in the therapeutical effects of antidepressants. Nuno is also interested in define new biological markers to follow the course of the disease and predict recurrent episodes. His PhD project at the ICVS was supervised by Doctor Luísa Pinto and Prof. Nuno Sousa.
