Luís Marques is conducting a Ph.D. in Developmental Biology by the University of Lisbon, starting in 2008 within the Development and Evolutionary Morphogenesis team at cE3c, under the supervision of Prof. Sólveig Thorsteinsdóttir. He is finishing his thesis "Signaling Pathways Downstream of Integrins in Early Mouse Myogenesis", where he has been investigating the role of specific signaling events such as PI3K / Akt in embryonic muscle development in both normal and beta1D integrin knock-in mutant mice. The project's aim is to assess how these pathways are regulated in normal developmental processes, and if and how they are impaired in integrin mutant embryos.
