Mario J. F. Calvete is a researcher at the CQC (Coimbra Chemistry Centre). He received his PhD in Natural Sciences–Organic Chemistry in 2004, from Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen, Germany. In 2010 he was appointed as Auxiliary Researcher at University of Coimbra. His current research interests are the design of hybrid organic-inorganic materials and their uses in homogeneous/heterogeneous catalysis, biomedicine and energetics.
Luis is an Assistant Professor at the Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Coimbra, Portugal. He is a researcher affiliated with the Coimbra branch of Instituto de Telecomunicações (www.it.pt) , where he researches signal processing for image and video communications and medical applications. He has a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer, US, and a MSc in Mathematics also from Rensselaer.
Rodrigo A. Cunha is a Professor at the Faculty of Medicine and Principal Investigator at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of the University of Coimbra (CNC). He is part of the Steering Committee of the European Neuroscience Campus and the National representative of the Network of European Neuroscience Institutes. He heads the group ‘Purines at CNC’, focusing on caffeine neuroprotection and purinergic modulation; his group is constituted by 5 resident PhD researchers, 5 post-docs and 6 PhD students. He has published over 200 papers with an h factor of 55. He has trained over 25 PhD students and 15 post-doctoral fellows and attracted funds from American and European agencies and private companies.
My main research focuses on the study of biologically relevant compounds, including the development of new Pt- and Pd-based anticancer drugs, through vibrational spectroscopy - FTIR, Raman and neutron scattering - including microspectroscopy and synchrotron-based techniques. Chemical quantum calculations and biological assays for assessment of cytotoxic activity are also applied.
Dr. Balu Krishnakumar, born on 1st May, 1982, obtained his Bachelor degree (1999-2002) in Chemistry from Government Arts College, C-Mutlore, affiliated to University of Madras, India and Master degree (2002-2004) in Chemistry from Annamalai University, Annamalainagar, Tamil Nadu, India. He received Ph.D (2005-2012) in Chemistry from Annamalai University, under the guidance of Prof. M. Swaminathan, Emeritus Scientist (CSIR). Subsequently joined as a postdoctoral fellow, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST), Taipei, Taiwan. After completing his term (October 2012-September 2013), He is currently pursuing his PDF (from 01/11/2013 to till date) under the guidance of Prof. Abílio José F. N. Sobral, University of Coimbra, Portugal. His research interests are, Development of solar active photocatalyts for environmental remediation, Investigation of organic photochemical reaction and mechanisms, Catalysis based synthesis, Fabrication of nano-materials and semiconductor mediated synthesis of novel heterocyclic compounds of biological importance. Right now, he has published sixty papers in reputed National and International Journals with total impact of 156.744, Total number of citations = 1302 (from scopus): h index = 22.
Pedro Neto is Professor Auxiliar at the University of Coimbra. His research interests include collaborative robotics, human-robot interaction, pattern recognition and robot autonomy. Pedro Neto is an active researcher in technology transfer projects, namely projects supported by the European Commission under HORIZON 2020 framework.
Paula I. Moreira received her PhD in Biomedical Sciences from University of Coimbra, Portugal, in 2007. Currently, she is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Medicine and head of the research group "Cell Metabolism and Quality Control" from CNC.IBILI Consortium, University of Coimbra, Portugal. Moreira’s group is interested in elucidating the role of mitochondria (energy, homeostasis and signals) and insulin signaling pathways in brain changes occurring in diabetes and age-related neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. The therapeutic potential of anti-diabetic drugs and mitochondrial modulators is also being investigated. Moreira has published more than 160 scientific peer-reviewed articles and she is on the editorial board of over 6 journals. Paula Moreira won the Stimulus to Research prize, in 2003, supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and, in 2008, the L’Oréal for Women in Science Award supported by L'Oreal Portugal/UNESCO/ FCT.
