Short CV

I have a degree in Biology (2015) from Faculty of Science of University of Porto (FCUP), and a Master degree in Biochemistry (2017) from FCUP and Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar (ICBAS), University of Porto. I integrated the MARBIOTECH project as a collaborator in the Histomorphology, Pathophysiology and Applied Toxicology research group of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR) where I also did an internship in the final year of my Biology degree (studying the effect of marine compounds, in combination with chemotherapeutic drugs, in breast cancer cell lines). I carried out my MSc thesis research work (isolation and characterization of gastric cancer stem cells) in the Differentiation and Cancer research group of i3s/IPATIMUP. Currently, I'm a PhD student (FCT PhD studentship) with the aim to further explore the results obtained during my MSc degree thesis research work.
