Chromosome Instability & Dynamics
Assistant Researcher
António Pereira received his BsC degree in Applied Physics followed by an MsC in Physics from the University of Minho under the supervision of Dr. Michael Belsley. He did his Ph.D. work on cell division at IBMC (University of Porto) under the supervision of Dr. Helder Maiato and Dr. Michael Belsley. His work focused on mathematical modeling and development of optical perturbation methods for studying mitotic spindle mechanics. Within the Chromosome Instability and Dynamics lab, he heads the imaging unit, which is devoted to the assembly and development of optical perturbation and imaging techniques, such as laser sub-micron surgery and inducible speckle imaging.
