Carlos M.M. Novo is Assistant Researcher at the Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Universidad Nova de Lisboa (IHMT/UNL), since 2009 January 1st.
He has a Chemistry degree from the Science Faculty of the Classic University of Lisbon; and PhD in Biochemistry, King’s College London, University of London.
Researcher in Biotechnology and more recently in cancer research. He is the coordinator of the optional Curricular Unit of “Monoclonal antibodies; production and application” of the Medical Parasitology MSc of the IHMT/UNL. Has been invited for given lessons on University courses in Faculdade Ciências e Tecnologia/ UNL, Faculdade de Ciências Médicas/UNL and Instituto de Medicina Molecular (FCM). He is member of the UCIBIO/REQUIMTE.
His main areas of interest are role the of Protein disulphide isomerase and chaperones in diverse human cancer as well the production of monoclonal antibodies for diagnosis and therapy of several cancers. He has participated in various research projects in several areas, and supervised ten PhD thesis.
