Where Ideas Grow
Nuno Bastos
PhD Student
I have a bachelor ́s degree in Biochemistry and I am almost completing my master ́s degree in Medicine and Molecular Oncology. During my bachelor ́s degree in Biochemistry I had the opportunity to work in the Molecular Oncology and Viral Patology group, directed by Professor Rui Medeiros, at Porto ́s IPO. I studied microRNAs as potential biomarkers in renal cell carcinoma. I have developed my Master´s thesis in the same group, studying the ability of microRNAs to mediate erlotinib resistance in renal cell carcinoma. Now, I will start studying exosomes biogenesis and secretion in the Genetic Dynamics of Cancer Cells group.
