Principal Investigator: João Pedro de Magalhães

João Pedro de Magalhães

I graduated in Microbiology from the Escola Superior de Biotecnologia in my hometown of Porto, Portugal, in 1999. My first experience in a research environment was as an intern (1998-1999) in the UnIGENe research group at the Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology in Porto, where I worked on Machado-Joseph disease, a neurological disorder.

As a doctoral fellow, I pursued my dream of unravelling the mechanisms of ageing by joining the Ageing and Stress Group at the University of Namur in Belgium. With Olivier Toussaint as my advisor, my work from 1999 to 2004 spanned molecular mechanisms of cellular senescence and responses to oxidative stress, evolutionary models of ageing, and analyses of gene networks.

Fascinated by the genome and by the opportunities its sequencing opened, I then did a postdoc from 2004 to 2008 with genomics pioneer George Church at Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA. Succinctly, we developed high-throughput approaches for studying ageing, including computational tools and databases, statistical models of mortality, and comparative genomics methods for investigating the evolution of longevity.

In 2008, I joined the School of Biological Sciences (now called Institute of Integrative Biology) at the University of Liverpool to develop my own group on genomic approaches to ageing. Please browse this website for more information about our work.

You can find more about me in my personal website.
