Degree in Biochemistry from University of Minho, Portugal (2015). Master degree in Health Sciences from the University of Minho, Portugal (2017). Attends the PhD in Health Sciences in University of Minho since 2018, in the oncobiology field. Published 4 articles in journals, one of them as first co-author. Has 1 book section and has received 1 award in an international congress at Brazil (2019). The main research interests are: molecular targeted therapies in oncology and mechanisms of resistance, specifically, receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) as therapeutic targets and Raf Kinase Inhibitor Protein (RKIP), namely, its biologic functions, and its potential use as theranostic marker and also as therapeutic target in different solid tumors. Special interest in HPV-related cancers.
