Ciência Vitae


Manuela Ferreira completed her PhD work at Cancer Research UK in 2010 and moved to iMM-Lisbon, and lately to Champalimaud Foundation, for postdoctoral research with H. Veiga-Fernandes. In 2020, she started setting up her laboratory at the University of Coimbra with focus on understanding how dietary cues shape innate-like lymphocytes in the healthy and diseased mucosal barriers. A main topic of research is in understanding mucosal barrier defence against pathogens at early-life and the underlying molecular and cellular pathways.
