Where Ideas grow
Joana Teixeira
PhD student
During my academic career, I had the opportunity to be involved in different research fields. This make me believe that the genetic information can be more than simple information and it is essential to understand the mechanisms used by the host and pathogens in a microbe interaction, as well as the molecular basis of diseases. Thus, my scientific interests are focused in Clinical Biology and I am particularity interested to know how the genetics can influence the development of diseases.
