About

Paula graduated in Biology at the University of Porto(1994) and then she spent 2 years as a Health Superior Technician at MedicalGenetic Institute, Porto. Next, Paula did herMaster thesis on Molecular Genetics at the Universityof Minho (1999) and concluded in 2002her PhD in Biological Sciences at University of Minho. Paula was avisiting scientist at the Department of Biological Sciences, ColumbiaUniversity, New York, USA (4 months, 2000) and at the Department of Neurology,Miami University, Florida, USA (3 months, 2004). Recently, Paula was appointed asa Visiting Professor (February to July) in Faculty of Sciences, Department ofBiology at KULeuven, Belgium. Since 2002, Paula is an Associate Professor at Schoolof Health Sciences (ECS) and a Principal Investigatorat the Health and Life Sciences Research Institute (ICVS), School of HealthSciences, University of Minho. Her current research interests include the studyof mechanisms of programmed cell death, a phenomenon crucial for embryonicdevelopment, tissue homeostasis, elimination of abnormal or damaged cells anddefense against pathogens. She has developed work in studying the mechanisms ofprogrammed cell death in yeast and their link with autophagy in differenteukaryotic cell models. Recently she has expanded her interests for the studyof cellular proteolytic systems, proteasome and autophagy and cell death inacute leukemias and myelodysplastic syndromes. She has also devoted efforts tostudying the role of autophagy in aging. Paula Ludovico is author or co-authorof more than 47 publications in international Journals, 5 book chapters andparticipated as oral presenter/poster presenter in more than 40 Internationalmeetings related with the field. Paula Ludovico was involved in theorganization of different international meeting or symposia. She has also beenacting as referee for more than 20 international journals.
