Research Interests

Nuno Oliveira has been interested in Genetic Toxicology and its impact in cancer research. He has been studying the mechanisms of DNA damage and repair induced by chemotherapeutic drugs (e.g. doxorubicin, oxaliplatin, MMC), food mutagens (e.g. acrylamide) as well as by Ionizing radiation and radiomimetic compounds. He is currently interested in the study of in vitro approaches towards breast cancer therapy using superoxide dismutase mimics (SODm) and DNA repair inhibitors (e.g. APE1 inhibitors).
