Overview

The group works in close collaboration with the University Hospitals of Coimbra (CHUC), and performs research in both the basic biology of gametes and stem cells focusing on metabolism aspects, and translational projects related to Infertility, Assisted Reproduction and Fertility Preservation. The goal is to both understand the molecular mechanisms involved, and directly improve clinical procedures, including communicating with patients.

Research projects on the male side include the proteomics-based search for sperm biomarkers of unexplained infertility, and well as tools to monitor sperm quality. The group is also interested in the potential effect on male fertility of environmental contaminants that may act as endocrine disruptors, and in spermicide-based male contraception.

On the female side the two main projects involve using both human samples and animal models to perfect the cryopreservation of ovarian tissue for oncology patients, and molecular strategies to revert aging-related effects in oocytes.

The group also works on the metabolism of stem cells, and how the manipulation of metabolic pathways can modulate their behavior and properties, notably of pluripotent stem cells, with findings that may have relevance for embryo assessment in assisted reproduction.
Finally, the group is very involved in projects related to outreach, education and science communication activities, including co-creation initiatives specifically targeted to different audiences, focusing on issues related to metabolism-dependent aspects of human health.
