Short CV

Tito T. Jesus, completed his BSc degree in 2011. In 2013 he was conferred a MSc degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal. In the same year he was awarded a Young Researcher Felowship at Health Sciences Research Center, University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal, with research interests in cell physiology, membrane transport and ionic modulation, particularly in Sertoli cells.

In 2014 Tito T. Jesus became a PhD student at ICBAS, University of Porto, funded by Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). Under the supervision of Marco G. Alves, Pedro F. Oliveira, and Mário Sousa, he worked on male reproductive biology, metabolic modulation and main cell signaling pathways that can be related with subfertility or infertility. During his 4-year PhD student fellowship he spent one year as Research Scholar in the Mary M. Wohlford Laboratory for Male Contraceptive Research, Center for Biomedical Research, Population Council, New York, under the supervision of C. Yan Cheng, to evaluate the role of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway proteins regulating actin- and microtubules-based cytoskeleton and blood-testis barrier (BTB) dynamics, in vitro and in vivo.

Tito T. Jesus is currently a post-doctoral researcher in Cancer Signalling and Metabolism group.
