L. Monteiro Rodrigues
General Director

MSc, PhD in Human Physiology, he’s the founder and Director of CBIOS.

He is the Director of the School of Health Sciences and Technologies and of the MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Univ. Lusófona).

Academic, mostly dedicated to skin physiology and pathophysiology research specially focusing quantification of skin properties, mathematical modeling of cutaneous variables, safety and efficacy trials.

He has published more than 350 papers related with his interest areas.

He is the founder and President of the Portuguese Society of Cosmetological Sciences (SPCC).


Nuno Saraiva

Lecturer in virology, cell and molecular biology at ECTS – ULHT, where he also develops his research projects as a member of CBiOS.

Nuno is an MSc in microbiology and molecular biology (from FC, Lisbon University), and a PhD in virology and cell biology (from Imperial College, London).

His main research interest is tumorigenesis, focusing on the molecular mechanisms underlying metastization. Nuno has published work in molecular virology, apoptosis, Ca2+ homeostasis, membrane proteins, cell migration and adhesion.


João Costa

MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences (FFUL), and PhD in Health Sciences – Pharmacy (Universidad de Alcalá).

Lecturer in Pharmacology, Toxicology and Human Genetics at ECTS – ULHT. He is also a researcher at CBIOS.

His research interests focus on cancer, mycotoxins and oxidative stress areas.
