Hi! My name is Marcio. I joined the Department of Chemistry as an Assistant Professor in Biomolecular structure (Structural biology) at the end of March. I completed my PhD in Molecular Biophysics at The University of State of São (2007). In 2007, I moved to the UK to work as a Postdoc at the University of Cambridge and was there until 2011. I then moved back to Brazil to start my own research group and in 2014, I was appointed as an Assistant Professor in Microbiology at the University of São Paulo.
I also have a fantastic team of researchers at the Department of Microbiology (Institute of Biomedical Science), in Brazil, and hope some of them will visit Warwick in the future. Here at Warwick, I will be working on proteins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Natural Products Biosynthesis using Structural Biology.
I love science and play software (as games) when solving structures. I really appreciate the beauty of protein structures and peculiarities involved in their mechanisms. I also like to sit in a pub and talk with friends and taste different foods. When I am alone, I like to see films and read a good book.
My office is 519, please feel free to come over to say hello! If you wish you also can follow my group news on @MarcioDiasgroup
