Catarina Carmo got a degree in Health Sciences in 2013, from a consortium of five faculties (Medicine, Sciences, Pharmacy, Dentistry and Psychology) within University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal. She then enrolled for a Masters degree in Molecular Genetics, from the School of Sciences of University of Minho, Braga, Portugal. In 2015, Catarina finished her research work for her Master thesis entitled “Role of sirtuin 3 on mitochondrial dynamics in Huntington's disease striatal cells” at the research group 'Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Signaling in Neurodegeneration' at Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of the University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal. She is currently a voluntary researcher within the same research group.



Area of Research: 

Mechanisms underlying unbalanced mitochondrial dynamics (focus on mitochondrial fission/fusion balance, mitophagy and mitochondrial movement) in Huntington’s disease cellular models. Modulation of lysine deacetylase sirtuin 3 and its role on mitochondrial dynamics in Huntington’s disease.
