Where Ideas Grow
Andreia Dias
PhD Student
I obtained my BSc in Genetics and Biotechnology in 2014 from the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro and I am currently a MSc student of the Master in Biochemistry in Faculty of Science of the University of Oporto, since 2015. Nowadays I am doing my master?s project that will be focused into the search for genetic modifiers for Familial Amyloid Polyneuropathy (FAP ATTRV30M), at UnIGENe, IBMC. Therefore, my thesis will be focused in the study of genetic and epigenetic mechanisms in order to understand the age-at-onset variation in Familial Amyloid Polyneuropathy (FAP ATTRV30M).
