Sofia D. Viana is a Young Researcher integrated at Coimbra Institute for Clinical and Biomedical Research [(iCBR), a Research Institute of the Faculty of Medicine of University of Coimbra (FMUC)] and Associate Professor at Coimbra Health School (Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra, IPC) in the Pharmacology&Therapeutics and Pharmacognosy areas. She completed her PhD in Health Sciences in 2016 by the University of Coimbra (UC), following a Master in Biochemistry (2011, UC) and two Bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry (2009, UC) and Pharmacy (2002, IPC). Additionally, she holds a Post-graduation in Applications, Synthesis and Transformation of natural products (2005, University of Aveiro). After succeeding at attaining her PhD with a strong neuroscience component, Sofia was granted with a Post-Doctoral fellowship (HealthyAging 2020, BID1.3) to investigate age-related changes in cardiovascular, metabolic and brain repair systems. In this role, she persevered in tackling her main scientific goals within in vivo preclinical studies regarding Pharmacology&Therapeutics, since she has been properly accredited by FELASA for Laboratory Animal Sciences (category C). Throughout her scientific career, Sofia acquired extensive knowledge in genetics, surgical and toxin-induced rodents' models of human diseases as well as biomedical detailed expertise's. The duality of her formation provided her the necessary tools to incorporate standard operating procedures (SOPs) applied in pharmaceutical clinical context, refining preclinical settings and improving the translational value of scientific achievements. In the past three years, Sofia has been thoroughly engaged in a project towards "humane" oral drug dosing in rodents. The scope of her vast theoretical and practical knowledge has been instrumental in the design and optimization of an innovative technological solution to ease the harm-benefit dilemma surrounding animal welfare and scientific validity within oral drug dosing (PCT/IB2021/053124 - 116301, Inventor). Notably, it was recently acknowledged as a 3Rs’ outstanding achievement by the European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (2021) and the Portuguese Society of Neurology (Pereira Monteiro Prize, 2021). Her proficiency and leadership skills are also showcased by the entrepreneurs’ grants INOVC2020 (2018) and Sustainable Campus Network (2021). Currently, Sofia is the Head of the Applied Research Unit and sits at the Scientific Council at Coimbra Health School (IPC). Since 2014, she has participated as a proactive Researcher in 15 R&D projects, 1 clinical trial and is currently a proactive member of 4 competitive R&D projects with over 1 million euros in funding. She is (co)author of 29 peer-reviewed articles in Q1 journals (17 published in the last 5 years), 1 book chapter and 85 conference papers, in addition to being a guest editor/regular reviewer of distinct (inter)national journals. Understanding the importance of science dissemination, including her own research outputs, she organized 10 (inter)nationals event(s) and participated in several national and international meetings being (co)author. She has been responsible for student training and (co)supervision of 11 MSc and 30 BSc students and currently surpervises 3 PhD, 2MSc and 4BSc students. In addition, Sofia has participated as lecturer in both MSc and PhD programs and several academic examining committees. In parallel to her scientific activity, she has also participated in science communication activities integrated in iCBR outreach programmes, such as the European Researchers Night, as well as further activities related with science dissemination to high school students and teachers. Currently, Sofia works in the area(s) of Medical and Health Sciences with emphasis on Pharmacology&Therapeutics as well as Laboratory Animals Welfare.
