Joaquim Vieira


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Joaquim Vieira studied biochemistry at the University of Lisbon, Portugal. He then moved to London for his PhD studies on the role of neuropilin 1 (NRP1) and its ligands during blood vessel growth and patterning in Professor Christiana Ruhrberg's laboratory at the University College London (UCL)-Institute of Ophthalmology. In 2008, Joaquim started as a postdoctoral researcher at the UCL-Institute of Child Health in Professor Paul Riley's laboratory to work on the charaterisation of adult epicardium-derived cells (EPDCs) and their contribution to cardiovascular homeostasis and endogenous repair. Joaquim joined the Department in June 2012 as part of the move of the "Riley lab" to Oxford. Joaquim is also a Fulford Junior Research Fellow (JRF) at Somerville College since October 2013.

Joaquim's current research interests include investigating the epigenetic mechanism(s) controlling epicardial activity during heart development and disease; and characterisation of small molecules with cardiogenic potential.
