Paulo J. Oliveira is recognized for his work as the Coordinator of the Mitochondrial, Metabolism, and Disease Group at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (CNC), University of Coimbra, Portugal and is the current Vice-President of the European Society of Clinical Investigation (ESCI). He has previously spent some time at the University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth, investigating the mitochondrial mechanisms of anthracycline-induced selective cardiotoxicity. Throughout his career, he has been involved in projects in which the objective was to advance fundamental knowledge and methodological aspects of mitochondrial research. His current research interests include the role of mitochondria in cardiovascular and liver diseases, the relationship between mitochondrial remodeling and (cancer) stem cell biology, development of novel mitochondrial-targeted therapeutics, as well as the mechanisms of drug-related mitochondrial toxicity. Dr. Oliveira has co-authored close to 200 publications focusing on mitochondrial research.
