Ana Rosa Melo
PhD Student
I have a degree in Ciências Biológicas e da Saúde (University of the Azores), since 2013. I did my MSc in Ciências Biomédicas (University of the Azores) and my MSc thesis was in molecular diagnostic testing with TP-PCR in Spinocerebellar ataxia type 3/Machado-Joseph disease. I was a volunteer in "Projecto Regional Integrado sobre a doença de Machado-Joseph (DMJ)/Ataxia espino-cerebelosa do tipo 3 (SCA3)" supervised by Prof. Doutora Manuela Lima. I had a research grant in the project "Iniciativa Europeia para a Ataxia espino-cerebelosa do tipo 3 (SCA3)/doença de Machado-Joseph"(JPCOFUND/0002/2015) and presently I'm a PhD student.
