Maria M. M. Santos


I graduated in Applied Chemistry (Organic Chemistry) at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon in 1999. After a short period at the University Paris-Sud XI (Orsay, France) working in catalysis, I started a PhD in the field of Indolocarbazole synthesis at Ana Lobo’s research group (New University of Lisbon, 2000-2004). In 2004, I was awarded a post-doctoral FCT fellowship to work in the area of asymmetric synthesis at the Amat-Bosch’s research group (University of Barcelona, Spain). In 2006, I shifted my research focus to medicinal chemistry and returned to Portugal for a post doc at the group of Rui Moreira of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Lisbon (FFUL).

My independent career started in 2008, when I was hired as Assistant Researcher at FFUL through the international tender Ciência 2007 programme. In 2013, I became a FCT investigator at Med.ULisboa and the ultimate goal of my research group is the development of general synthetic methods and strategies, and their application to the synthesis of bioactive molecules.
