Emanuel Gonçalves is an Assistant Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, and Integrated Researcher at INESC-ID, and obtained his PhD degree from the University of Cambridge with work performed at EMBL-EBI. His main interests fall under the areas of Bioinformatics and Machine Learning applied to Cancer Research. During his stay at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, he will work with Dr. John Doench developing novel combinatorial base-editing CRISPR screens. This project aims to identify synergistic genetic interactions that contribute to drug resistance, ultimately uncovering mechanisms that could be targeted for new treatments.
