A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Graduated in Pharmaceutical Sciences at Faculdade de Farmácia da Universidade do Porto in 2010, I completed my PhD degree in Microbiology in the same institution in July 2017. The work performed during my PhD sought to elucidate the molecular basis for the expansion of main multidrug resistant (MDR) bacterial pathogens (especially Klebsiella pneumoniae) by a multidisciplinary approach including conventional genotypic, phenotypic, and molecular tools and some of the most cutting-edge high-throughput omics (genomics, metabolomics, proteomics) approaches. On the behalf of my PhD, I have been awarded with the Young Investigation Award – Isabel Spencer Martins by Portuguese Society of Microbiology in 2017. Currently, I am working within the BEBP Unit at the Institut Pasteur, on the MEDVETKLEBS project where we are developing and harmonizing detection and strain culture methods for K. pneumoniae, organizing a broad sampling of ecological niches and of potential sources of this bacterium in order to perform genomics analysis and transmission modeling, including development of new methods for source attribution and risk assessment.
