After completing his BsC+MSc in Biology from the University of Lisbon (Portugal) Filipe started his PhD in the University of Lyon (France). During his PhD in Patrick Mehlen’s laboratory at the Centre de Recherche en Cancerologie de Lyon Filipe found a new functional ligand for the Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP), a key protein in Alzheimer’s disease.

With his PhD in hand Filipe then moved to Mike Olson’s laboratory at the CRUK Beatson Institute in Glasgow (Scotland) to work in the role of F-actin dynamics in intestinal stem biology as well as colorectal cancer initiation and progression.

Filipe joined Winton Group in 2013 and since then he has been  interested in understanding and modelling colorectal cancer initiation in mouse models using chemical mutagenesis.
