Nuno G. Oliveira has been interested in different areas of Toxicology, particularly in Genetic Toxicology. He has been studying the mechanisms of DNA damage and repair induced by chemotherapeutic drugs, food mutagens, ionizing radiation and radiomimetic compounds. Currently, he is involved in the study of in vitro approaches towards breast and renal cancer therapy using superoxide dismutase mimics (SODm) and DNA repair inhibitors.
