Background: 

I'm graduated in Biotechnology at the University New of Lisbon, where I have done my master in biochemistry. My PhD was in Coimbra, in the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology in Biosciences studying the role of mitochondria and DNA damage response in cancer stem cells. After my PhD, I worked in a research project focus on mitochondrial quality control by redox signalling during age-related muscle wasting. After that, I was a PostDoc for the last 3 years in the University of Nottingham where I studied new proteins/genes targets to improve chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments in breast, ovarian and glioblastomas cancers.
