Paulo Matos works as a Researcher at the Department of Genetics, The National Health Institute Doutor Ricardo Jorge (INSA), Lisbon, Portugal. He received his Ph.D. degree (2004) in biochemistry (molecular genetics) from the University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal. His earlier research activities were focused on identification and characterization of novel germline mutations in familial cancer syndromes. More recently, his work has primarily focused on the contribution of deregulated small GTPase signaling in cancer. His main research interests have now expanded to the interplay between small GTPases, and how their signaling pathways crosstalk with different cellular processes, from gene transcription to protein trafficking, always in the context of human disease.
