Biography
MCB (MD PhD), Full Professor at the University of Coimbra, is the Scientific Coordinator of the National Functional Brain Imaging Scientific initiative (Portugal). He is also the Director of CIBIT, which was evaluated as Excellent by an International panel and is the Vice-Director of ICNAS, the Medical Imaging Infrastructure at the University of Coimbra, which also has an important role in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience Research and Advanced Services within the National Health System (about 30 ongoing trials and protocols, from Molecular Imaging to Psychiatry). He obtained his PhD at the Max-Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt, Germany and is now Full Professor at the University of Coimbra. He has held a Professorship in Psychology in 2000 at the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands. Before, he was a Postdoctoral fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute for Brain Research, Germany where he had also performed his PhD work (1994-1999). His achievements are well reflected in publications in top General Journals, such as Nature and PNAS and Top Clinical Translational research journals such as Journal of Clinical Investigation, Brain, Human Molecular Genetics) as well as others in the fields of Human Neurophysiology and Visual and Cognitive Neuroscience (Brain, Neurology, The Journal of Neuroscience, The Journal of Neurophysiology, Human Brain Mapping, Neuroimage, Cerebral Cortex, Cortex, The Journal of Vision, Ophthalmology, IOVS, Neuron, The Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience and others). MCB has made interdisciplinary contributions in the fields of Cognitive Neuroscience, Human and Animal Neurophysiology, Visual Neuroscience, Human Psychophysics, Functional Brain Imaging and translational research in Psychiatry and Neurology. He has been awarded several National and International Prizes (> 200.000). He contributed to 3 patents and has experience also in medical device clinical trials and telerehabilition approaches, and combination of serious games with assisted living approaches. Finally, he has been involved in major International grants such as EVIGENORET (Functional Genomics of the Retina), BACS (Bayesan Approach to cognitive Systems), EPILEPSIAE (on Epilepsia), the FP7 Project BRAINTRAIN (Taking imaging into the therapeutic domain: Self-regulation of brain systems for mental disorders), a Marie Curie Project and several H2020 grants (EuroBioimaging, STIPED, IMI-2).
