David S Williams Laboratory

David Geffen School of Medicine
I am from Leiria. I have moved to Coimbra, where I have graduated in BIochemistry. After finishing my Master in Biochemical Engineering I have moved to London, to pursue a PhD in Cell Biology at Imperial College. My adventure in the US started in 2007, in San Diego. The lab where I was performing my postdoctoral studies has then moved to Los Angeles, to the Jules Stein Eye Institute, and here I am now! I am studying the cellular mechanism that lead to a type of Usher Syndrome, and attempting gene therapy approaches. I spend most of my time inside a lab, as I am passionate about my work, but on my free time one of the things I enjoy is the company of the amazing portuguese community from LA.
