Neide Vieira (PhD) graduated as Applied Biology in 2005, at the University of Minho, with the highest mark (17/20). She obtained her European PhD degree in Health Sciences in April 2010, by the University of Minho (Portugal), and the University of Aberdeen (UK), under the supervision of Prof. Sandra Paiva and Prof. Alistair JP Brown. During her PhD studies, Neide Vieira focused on studying the function, physiology, and regulation of carboxylic acids transporters in pathogenic and non-pathogenic yeasts, working for that purpose in distinct labs in Europe: in the Institute of Medical Sciences in Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK; in the Institute Jacques Monod in Paris; and in France and in the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. 

Neide Vieira did her first postdoc in the NYU Langone medical center, under the supervision of Prof. Tung-Tien, Sun. She worked as a part of a multidisciplinary team studying the trafficking, assembly, structure, function and disease implications of integral membrane proteins.

Neide Vieira received a 2016 NARSAD Young Investigator grant, and is currently interested in the interplay between proteostasis and brain ageing, and is focused on understanding how defects in protein homeostasis can negatively affect the central nervous system (CNS) and the immune system, influencing cognitive ability.

Neide Vieira is author in several scientific reports. She has presented original work in a number of national and international meetings in the form of poster or lecture. She is currently supervising both undergraduate and master students

Neide Vieira has been honored with 10 awards, including grants to attend several EMBO and FEBS meetings, a PhD and BPD FCT scholarship, poster awards, including 1st poster award by Nature Cell Biology, at an EMBO meeting, and a 2016 NARSAD Young investigator grant.
