Márcia Teixeira is a research fellow since 2018 at Laboratory of Mitochondrial Biomedicine and Teranostics (LBioMiT) - Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (CNC), University of Coimbra, which is recognized as an entity certified since 2011 by NP EN ISO 9001: 2008, with registration number 2011 / CEP.3971 (entity certifying APCER). She obtained her BSc and MSc degree in Biochemistry from Faculty of Sciences and Technology of University of Coimbra in 2016 and 2018, respectively. She is integrated in a multicentric project, which aims to characterize both genetically and functionally Optic Atrophies, specifically Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON) disease and she assists in genetic analysis, integrated in the diagnostic tests of mitochondrial cytopathies, using up-to-date techniques, such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). She also gives laboratory training and support to highschool, BSc or MSc students. In 2020, she did volunteer work at LAC-UC, which is integrated in the platform UC Against Covid-19. Márcia Teixeira has participated in several events and she made a oral poster communication.

2018/11/16 - 2018/11/16 The skill of writing a conference abstract and getting it accepted at a scientific meeting ¿ is highly prized, but rarely taught. This one-day course focused on this skill, and in particular on the process of writing. It aimed to give doctors and researchers the confidence and motivation to present their data at conferences. The course has been developed by Dr Mark Pickin in consultation with Tim Albert, based on the principles of his highly successful writing courses.
