Where Ideas Grow
Liliana Oliveira
Junior Researcher
Liliana obtained her PhD degree in Biomedical Sciences in 2012 (ICBAS, University of Porto). Her work was focused in the immunobiology of infection by Group B Streptococcus, having done her work in ICBAS (University of Porto), Institut Cochin and Institut Pasteur (Paris). She joined the Cell Activation and Gene Expression group in October 2012 as a post-doc fellow to work in a project aiming to identify ligands for scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) proteins and explore their roles in the immune system.
