Patrícia Gomes Almeida
Main Research Interests
My main research interest is the role of the extracellular matrix in regulating morphogenesis during vertebrate development. I am also interested in studying how the extracellular matrix and paracrine factors cooperate in order to orchestrate morphogenesis, focusing on somitogenesis and somite maturation.
