My name is Tiago Magalhães, and I am currently the Executive Director of CCMar, in Portugal, a research organization for Marine sciences with European and worlwide reach. Words that describe my daily work: fundraising, human resources supervision, innovation promotion, research policy, institutional representation, strategic planning, financial supervision. Before my current position, I was a genomics scientist and I worked in disease causal genes in autism, diabetes and bowel cancer, and ancestry analysis, studying human migrations and admixture.
I know R and Python very well, and the genetics/genomics software. For over 5 years I was part of the Autism Genome Project (AGP), a big genomics consortium, that included over 20 labs and a budget of over $ 20 million. In AGP I experienced the peculiarities of international work, with stringent deadlines in an ultra-competitive environment.
Another facet of my CV is entrepreneurship, technology transfer and innovation, as I believe that science only makes sense when applied to solve societal challenges. I was the founder and CEO of a personalized medicine start-up, and I currently advice a genomics start-up in Portugal. I am a member of the investment council a VC portuguese company and I am on the review board of another one. I am currently an expert reviewer for the H2020 European Union programs, I am a reviewer for genomics journals.
I have worked/studied in Portugal, Germany, US, Canada, East-timor, Ireland and Brasil.
