RC established several national and international collaborations, and acquired large scientific expertise by working at 5 different labs (Portugal, USA & Italy), in AD and axonal biology fields, mastering a wide range of methodologies (e.g. microscopy, molecular biology, neuronal cultures, cell lines, in vivo studies, in utero electroporation, MCAo and human sample processing). In Particular RC had advanced training at one of the most respected labs in AD field (Klein's Lab), at Northwestern Univ. (USA) and at the lab of L. Cancedda (Italy). RC completed a FELASA cat C course in Laboratory Animal Science (2010). RC has Organized 2 event (conceived and lectured science courses and I has been involved in outreach science awareness activities); Participated in 34 event(s); Lectured in BSc, MSc and PhD programs at the Universities of Coimbra and Algarve and formally supervised/co-supervised 7 MSc students (Portuguese and foreign) and several undergraduate students. Mentored/ tutored several PhD and MSc students during their laboratory internships (>13 in total); Has been Committee member in several theses defenses (8 MSc thesis, as main opponent) at the University of Coimbra and University of Aveiro; Presently, RC supervises 1 PhD student (UI/BD/154202/2022), 2 MSc students and 1 BSc student. Has received 7 awards and/or honors, including a scientific incentive grant (2022), PhD fellowship and Post-Doctoral fellowship in a highly competitive program (FCT 2006 and 2013, respectively); RC is ad hoc reviewer for several scientific journals (including Aging cell journal). In his curriculum Ciência Vitae the most frequent terms in the context of scientific, technological and artistic-cultural output are: Alzheimer's disease; ER Stress; Mitochondria; NMDA receptors; Cell Culture; Cell Biology; Axonal development; Basic biology; Synaptogenesis; Neuronal development; Axonal degeneration; Synapse; Axonal growth; Ribosomes; Ubiquitin protein system; axonal biology; Synapse biology RC benefited from 2 paternity leave (2017, 2023).
