Sandra Tavares
Junior Researcher

My main research interest has always been cancer biology. During my Master, I mainly focused on identifying Melanoma biomarkers. The complexity and diversity of mechanisms involved in cancer disease were so fascinating to me that I decided to extend my knowledge on this topic through a PhD project. Then, I developed my post-doc studies in the Netherlands. There, I investigated mechanisms involved in migration and metastasis in Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Currently, I am a Junior Researcher developing my own line of research.
