João Pedro de Magalhães : Integrative Genomics of Ageing Group, University of Liverpool

Dr João Pedro de Magalhães leads the Integrative Genomics of Ageing Group which focuses on understanding the genetic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms of ageing. his group is a world-leader in employing genomics and bioinformatics to study ageing with pioneering work in sequencing and analysing genomes from long-lived species.

Dr de Magalhaes graduated in Microbiology in 1999 from the Escola Superior de Biotecnologia in his hometown of Porto, Portugal, and then obtained his PhD in 2004 from the University of Namur in Belgium, where he worked in the Ageing and Stress Group led by Dr Olivier Toussaint.

Following a postdoc with genomics pioneer Prof George Church at Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA, in 2008 Dr de Magalhaes was recruited to the University of Liverpool in the UK to develop his own group on genomic approaches to ageing.

Now a senior lecturer, Dr de Magalhaes leads the Integrative Genomics of Ageing Group (http://pcwww.liv.ac.uk/~aging/) which focuses on understanding the genetic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms of ageing.

Notably, his group is a world-leader in employing genomics and bioinformatics to study ageing with pioneering work in sequencing and analysing genomes from long-lived species.

The group’s research integrates different strategies but its focal point is developing and applying experimental and computational methods that help bridge the gap between genotype and phenotype, a major challenge of the post-genome era, and help decipher the human genome and how it regulates complex processes like ageing.
