Cristina Nogueira-Silva is graduated in Medicine (2007) and Ph.D. in Medicine (2012 – with the thesis ‘Looking for Novel Physiological Regulators of Lung Development’) by University of Minho. She has completed Obstetrics and Gynecology residence in 2015. Actually, she is Associate Professor at the School of Medicine of the University of Minho, Researcher of the Surgical Sciences & Allied Technologies of the ICVS and specialist in Gynecology and Obstetrics at Hospital de Braga. Her main research interests are focused in fetal development, mechanisms of developmental/ congenital diseases, gynecological and obstetrics pathologies, with translational purposes. She has participated and coordinated several competitive research projects. She supervises Master and Ph.D. students. She has published around sixty scientific articles/book chapters in international journals/books (factor h-12). She was (co)author of more than two hundred communications in scientific meetings and was distinguished with more than 25 scientific grants. She is general-secretary of Portuguese Society of Obstetrics and Materno-Fetal Medicine (since 2017) and member of College of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Portuguese Order of Physicians (since 2021).
