Research topics: Anticancer activities in marine sponge- and coral-associated bacteria

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Lisbon and am enrolled in the Biotechnology Master program of Instituto Superior Técnico. Currently, I am working on my Master thesis in the ‘Microbial Ecology and Evolution Research Group’ under the supervision of Dr Tina Keller-Costa and Prof Rodrigo Costa. In collaboration with Dr Nuno Bernardes and Prof Arsénio Fialho from the ‘Bacterial Pathogenesis and Therapeutic Products Research Group’, we are studying anticancer activities of natural products produced by marine sponge- and coral-associated bacteria.
