Anabela Marisa Azul is researcher (Decree Law 57/2016, amended by Law 57/2017)) at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (CNC) and Institute for Interdisciplinary Research at the University of Coimbra (III-UC). She graduated in Biology in 1996 at the UC and completed her PhD degree in Biology, specialization in Ecology, at the same institution, with a collaboration at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU, München, Germany) and Real Garden Botánico (RJB, Madrid, Spain). After her PhD, she continued to work on biotic interactions with a focus on soil symbiotic fungi and their functional attributes linked to Mediterranean forests sustainability goals. She became an Associated Researcher (Ciência 2009) at the Centre for Functional Ecology (CFE-UC), where she remained until 2014. Here, Marisa developed a holistic approach for advancing translational research that combined the biodiversity and sustainable innovation in food production and public scientific awareness (from early childhood on). She works in the area(s) of Biological sciences and Health Sciences with emphasis on functional attributes of fungi and Social sciences with interests in Participatory Research and Interdisciplinarity for Human well-being and Sustainability Research, Science and Art Collaborations, Science Communication. She has successfully supervised 3 PhD students, 6 MSc students, 6 Research Fellows; she currently (co)supervises 3 PhDs, 2 within a European Training Network under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme. Committed to the Advanced Graduate Programme at CNC (since 2014), she helps in the strategic institutional planning for attracting high competitive funding for advanced development programmes. She is reviewer of scientific journals and Deputy Editor of the Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Marisa has published over 40 scientific papers, several science books (4 for children), a comic book and an animation (nominated for the New Media Prize of the European Science TV and New Media Festival and Awards 2015 http://montadomedia.com/).
