Eva Serrao – Radiology Academic Lecturer at the University of Cambridge, Addenbrookes Hospital
Eva Mendes Serrão, MD PhD received her medical degree from the University of Coimbra in Portugal in 2006 and then started her medical training in Clinical Radiology in Lisbon in 2008. During this period, her curiosity for science led her to volunteer in a basic research lab. In 2010 a Radiology rotation focused on magnetic resonance on pancreatic cancer at the Erasmus Hospital (Brussels, Belgium) motivated her to interrupt the medical training and pursue a career in research. She was successfully granted the Gulbenkian Champalimaud PhD fellowship for medical doctors in 2010 and subsequently a Marie Curie Fellowship in 2011 at the University of Cambridge (Cambridge, UK).
She completed her doctoral studies in 2016 at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge during which she received a number of awards for her work, and also published in several high impact peer-reviewed journals. She is currently a Clinical Lecturer in the Department of Radiology – Addenbrooke’s Hospital (Cambridge, UK). Her main clinical research interest is in pancreatic cancer, with particular interest in novel magnetic resonance imaging techniques as 13C-MRIS.
