He then subsequently trained in hepatology at the Mount Sinai Hospital and Medical School, New York, NY, under Hans Popper, Fenton Schaffner, and Fiorenzo Paronetto. He was involved in the early studies of the cellular immune response to hepatitis B virus.

Professor Carneiro de Moura was Dean of the Medical School of Lisbon from 1984 to 1988 and Director of the Santa Maria Hospital from 1988 to 1997.

For the past twenty years, he has conducted research in the areas of hepatitis B viral infection, immunological mechanisms of liver disease, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and antiviral therapy in hepatitis C.

Professor Carneiro de Moura has been a member of the editorial boards of the Journal of Hepatology and the Journal of Viral Hepatitis. He is the founding President of the Portuguese Association for the Study of the Liver. He is an active member of the European Association of the Study of the Liver (EASL) and was its President in 1998. Professor Carneiro de Moura is the President Elect of the Portuguese Society of Gastroenterology (2001-2003).

He is married to Margarida Carneiro de Moura, a hematologist, and they have a son and a daughter.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
The strong influence of my teachers at the Mount Sinai Medical School in New York: Hans Popper, Fenton Shaffner, and Fiorenzo Paronetto.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Frederico Madeira, Professor of Medicine at the Medical School of Lisbon. He was a unique clinician and an extraordinary teacher. Henry Adams once wrote, 'A teacher affects eternity, he can never tell when his influence stops.' Madeira was a lifelong example. Later I met other great teachers, such as Sheila Sherlock, at the old Royal Free, and Hans Popper at the Mount Sinai. They made studying medicine a thrilling experience.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
A paper by Card and Marks, 'The relationship between acid output of the stomach following maximal histamine stimulation and the parietal mass' (Clin Sci 1960; 19: 147). I was starting my MD thesis, and it led me to my first research studies and to gastroenterology.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
With Fiorenzo Paronetto, that cell-mediated immune reactivity to hepatitis B antigens has an important role in the outcome of hepatitis B virus infection (Gastroenterology 1975; 69: 310-315).
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
Not staying longer in the USA.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To write a book about the places to where I have traveled.
What is your greatest regret?
I have no regrets so far.
How do you relax?
Walking by the sea. Traveling.
What is your favorite sport?
Tennis
What is your best place in the world?
Quinta do Lago in the southern part of Portugal. The magnificent views of the Ria Formosa, the sea and the lake are unique.
What is your favorite film?
"L´Avventura" (Antonioni, 1960).
What car do you drive?
Jaguar S-type 3.0-litre V6 SE.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My computer and the Internet. I am fascinated by the world that is now available to all of us.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"Verdi", by Robert Hardcastle. I have also started, "Licks of Love: Short Stories", and a sequel "Rabbit Remembered", by John Updike, one of my favorite American writers.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
I was impressed by the idea when Roy Pounder invited me to join.
