Degree in Biochemistry from the University of Coimbra, in 1992 and then held a Master of Biomedical Engineering – Instrumentation at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra. The master's thesis was held under the supervision of Professor Guilherme Cunha-Vaz and it was dedicated to the study of the alterations of the blood-retinal barrier permeability by confocal microscopy. In 1998, she started her PhD in Biology, specialty Cell Biology under the supervision of Professor Guilherme Cunha-Vaz and of Professor Arsélio Pato de Carvalho. In the PhD thesis she studied the contribution of the inflammatory mediators to the changes of the blood-retinal barrier in animal models of diabetes. After PhD, she began her teaching activity as Assistant Professor in the Master of Veterinary Medicine at the University School Vasco da Gama. In 2006, she began a postdoctoral program in the area of brain tumors, with a FCT scholarship. During the postdoctoral program she collaborated on postgraduate courses of the PhD programs and acquired experience in oncobiology. In 2008 she began the Master in Medicine which concluded in 2014. Over time, she has supervised and collaborated in the supervision of master and doctoral theses and collaborated with research groups in the areas of oncobiology and inflammation. At the moment, she is resident at the University Hospital in Coimbra, department of Clinical Pathology, she is an invited teacher of Anatomy and Physiology at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria and maintains collaboration with the Cancer and Therapies Targeted group of the Center for Neuroscience of Coimbra.
