Biography

In 2016 I graduated from Lisbon School of Health Technology in Portugal with a BSc in Nuclear Medicine. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I had the opportunity to learn different areas of Nuclear Medicine, such as Radiopharmacy, Medical Physics and Radiobiology.

After my graduation I worked as Nuclear Medicine Technologist at Barts Health NHS Trust where I improved my skills in SPECT/CT, PET/CT and Radiopharmacy.

In 2017 I undertook an MSc in Radiopharmaceutics and PET Radiochemistry at King’s College where I undertook a research project on the assessment of the potential of 67Ga-DOTA-PSMA for metastatic-castration resistant prostate cancer.

The CDT program is going to give me the opportunity to combine not only my interest in Nuclear Medicine and research, but also to show people that radiation can be successfully harnessed to benefit Medicine in a multitude of ways.

Project: 206 - How do medical imaging radioisotopes used for diagnostic imaging and cell tracking affect cancer and immune cells?
