Miguel Machuqueiro is an Assistant Researcher at BioISI – BioSystems and Integrative Sciences Institute and the Departamento de Química e Bioquímica, Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL). He got his degree in Biochemistry from FCUL and a Ph.D. in Bioorganic Chemistry from the University of Bern, Switzerland. During his post-doc at ITQB-UNL, he started his research about the pH and redox potential effects on the structure and dynamics of biomolecules.
In 2009, he moved back to FCUL as an independent researcher, founded the Machuqueiro Lab, and started his actual research lines. There is a special emphasis on studies involving the influence of pH and redox potential on biomolecules in confined environments, in particular, in protein’s active sites and at the water/membrane interface.
