Sérgio Manuel Marques, PhD.
He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2007, from the University of Lisbon (Portugal). During his first postdoc, conducted at the University of Lisbon and the University of Pisa (Italy), he worked on the design, synthesis and modeling of multifunctional agents against Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Between 2014 and 2016 he held a Marie Curie fellowship at the Masaryk University, in Czech Republic, where he focused his research on the in silico study of molecular tunnels and gates in proteins and their engineering. He currently works as a research fellow at Masaryk University, where his main research interests are the computational modelling of enzymatic systems with the aim of improving their activity and stability for biotechnological applications. Originally with extensive experience in experimental chemistry and biochemistry, for the last 6 years he has worked exclusively in computational biology. He has co-authored 39 articles, 1 book chapter and 2 patents.
