Dr Cong (Claire) Tang
Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Researcher
I joined the GBernardes group in iMM, Lisbon as a Marie-Curie funded Postdoctoral Researcher in September 2020. I work in an international and interdisciplinary team that focuses on the discovery and development of molecular glues for targeted protein degradation, particularly in cancer therapy. I am also a part of the SARS-CoV-2 project group that works to design and identify potential anti-virus compounds.
I received two years of intensive scientific training (2017–2019) at Emory University, School of Medicine, US as part of a MD and PhD program as a visiting student. In December 2019 I obtained a doctoral degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China. My previous research mainly focused on discovery and validation of oncogenic protein-protein interactions in signal transduction pathways of cancer cells. I obtained my Masters in Clinical Medicine from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China in 2017, after one year intern doctor training in the First Affiliated Hospital of Xi’an Jiaotong University.
Areas of expertise:
