Patrícia Gomes de Almeida is conducting a Ph.D. in Developmental Biology by the University of Lisbon starting in 2013 within the Development and Evolutionary Morphogenesis of cE3c. She is conducting the project “Coordinating signaling pathways in development: cross-talk between Sonic hedgehog and the extracellular matrix in somitogenesis”, under the supervision of Dr. Sólveig Thorsteinsdóttir, and Dr. Isabel Palmeirim and Dr. Raquel Andrade from the University of Algarve. Patrícia Gomes de Almeida Ph.D. project aim is to better understand how fibronectin extracellular matrix and Sonic hedgehog morphogen, one of the major players regulating embryogenesis, cooperate and interact during vertebrate development, further establishing fibronectin extracellular matrix as an active player in orchestrating morphogenesis.
