Background and activities
Maria Joao Pinho is an enthusiastic biochemist, specialized in molecular and cellular biology in cardiovascular disease. She received her PhD in 2008 from the University of Porto in Porto, Portugal and, during 2010, she worked at the Center for Molecular Physiology Research, Children's National Medical Center, Washington DC, USA, under the supervision of Dr. Pedro A. Jose. From 2014 to 2016, she worked for Dr. Henrique Girão at IBILI in the University of Coimbra. More recently (in 2016), she joined ISB as a postdoctoral associate. Her long-term goal is to identify and understand novel signaling pathways involved in cardiac disease development to improve current therapies.
