About Margarida Cardoso Moreira

I am an evolutionary biologist interested in understanding how novel morphological and physiological traits evolve. I aim to understand both the genetic (genes and types of mutations) and developmental bases (cellular origins and developmental constraints) of morphological innovations. I am currently a postdoc in the group of Henrik Kaessmann at Heidelberg University. My research focuses on understanding how mammalian organs evolve and I am tackling this question by comparing the development of different organs across multiple mammalian species using genomic techniques.
