Paula de Oliveira
Research Fellow at UK-DRI UCL and ION sponsored by Eli Lilly & Co (co-supervised by Prof Adrian Isaacs and Dr Gabriele Lignani).
I completed my undergraduate degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and correspondent MPharm at the University of Coimbra (Portugal). I then received my doctoral degree in Neurosciences from the University of Surrey (UK), which focused on investigating effective therapeutics in the context of sleep disorders and neurodegeneration. My current research focus as a postdoctoral researcher in Isaacs/Lignani’s lab focus on using in vivo models to investigate potential gene therapies against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia (ALS/FTD).
