Where Ideas Grow
Cátia Carvalho
PhD Student

Since 2016, I hold a bachelor's degree in Pathologic, Cytologic, and Thanatologic Anatomy from the School of Allied Health Technologies, Polytechnic of Porto. In 2018, I concluded my master's degree in Molecular and Celular Biology at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto. For my thesis, I explored the biological role of the Dynein Light Intermediate Chain, an essential dynein subunit in neuronal trafficking. In 2019, I was awarded an FCT scholarship, and I am now a Ph.D. student (MCBiology Doctoral Program) mostly interested in continuing the study of the functional diversity of dynein 1 subunits, using C. elegans as a model.
