University of Lisbon
Carlos M Farinha is Assistant Professor with Habilitation at Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisboa and PI at the BioISI research centre (Functional Genomics and Proteostasis Unit). His research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of cystic fibrosis (CF), in particular the endoplasmic reticulum retention and early degradation of CFTR’s most common mutant as well as its rescue strategies, through modified folding or circumvention of quality control mechanisms and elucidation of the role of novel CFTR interactions. He received the 2012 ERS Romain Pauwels Research Award from the European Respiratory Society for “research into the different aspects of CFTR biology”. He has authored 34 refereed international papers and was PI in 4 competitive grants.
