Nadine C Santos, PhD, holds a Researcher position at the Association P5 Digital Medical Centre (ACMP5), and previously at the Clinical Academic Center-Braga (2CA-B) in a health translational interregional project, all within the nexus of Life and Health Sciences Research Institute (ICVS) the University of Minho (UMinho) School of Medicine (EM). Is an Invited Assistant Professor (60%) at the EM/UMinho in the Humanities area of the medical curriculum. Was a FCT Research Assistant (2015-2018) at the ICVS (EM/UMinho) and the ICVS/3Bs - PT Government Associate Laboratory (Braga/Guimarães, Portugal), where she also conducted post-doctoral work (2009-2015) in neuroscience. Was a doctoral student (2004-2009) at the School of Molecular Biosciences, Washington State University; having also conducted her undergraduate (1998-2002) and MSc (2002-2004) studies in the United States, in biochemistry and forensic science, respectively. From 2011, her research goal has been centred on identifying factors contributing to healthy cognitive ageing, in the absence of pathological disease, as assessed by cognitive performance (potential, preservation and limits) and mood state. Ultimately, the aim is to translate the knowledge into effective, practical and sustainable solutions to promote cognitive healthspan in the older adult. Multidisciplinary approaches and measures (neuropsychological, clinical, biochemical and socio-demographic) are applied in a cross-sectional and longitudinal fashion in larger population-based cohorts, with interventional studies in smaller cohorts presently addressing the possible relation between quality of life measures and indicators cognitive health and performance in ageing. Current overall functions and responsibilities include: (i) establishment of community-wide network of contacts/recruitment outposts and overall maintenance and organisation of the recruitment and evaluation of the older/elderly human cohort; (ii) assessment and data analysis of socio-demographic, cognitive, biochemical and clinical variables; (iii) development and management of an integrated project databases; (iv) project logistics in project- and grant-related tasks as needed. Neuropsychological/cognitive study methodologies cover neuropsychological instruments and neuroimaging techniques, rendered possible by a net of collaborative work. Has supervised 4 PhD thesis on cognitive ageing (completed; on methodologies of assessment, on sleep quality, on correlates with physical activity, and on correlates with dietary habits/measures), and supervises 1 other PhD student (ongoing; on delirium). Since 2011, has co-authored > 70 peer-reviewed international articles (> 900 citations, with a h-index of 18) and has been co-PI in competitive funded projects in ageing. Aims to achieve scientific independence and maturity rendered possible by steady and value-based work via a consolidated network from researcher, to the health care provider, to the older individual. Was an active participant in the European Innovation Partnership - Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) of the European Commission, and strives to stay active in participation in conferences, congresses and workshops. Is an Associate Editor at Behavioural Brain Research, and an Editorial Board Member at Aging Brain. Is a member of the Ethics Committee for Life and Health Sciences at UMinho. Beyond her professional life, has lived in 4 countries across 3 continents, is a foster single-parent for at risk youth, loves her pets, her in-house garden, and appropriating walls and shelves for a plethora of books. Dreams of one day writing the perfect short-story. Truly enjoys her daily family evening walk as a mental reboot to tackle the next day, and for entertainment is a fan of all things science fiction. Finds common ground between her professional and personal life in her approach to both: balance, dedication, ethics, structure and, ultimately, attentiveness and caring.
