Joana Abrantes graduated in Applied Animal Biology - Biology (University of Porto, Faculty of Sciences) in 2004 and completed her PhD Degree in Biology in 2010 (University of Porto). She was a post-doc fellow between 2011-2013 in the University of Nantes and CIBIO. She is currently Assistant Researcher (CEECIND/00078/2017; IF/01396/2013) in Rede de Investigação em Biodiversidade e Recursos Genéticos - University of Porto in the group of Immunity and Emerging Diseases (IMED), and Invited Auxiliary Professor in University of Porto, Faculty of Sciences, Department of Biology, since 2018. She was recently appointed member of ORBEA of BIOPOLIS-CIBIO, the Animal Welfare Ethics and Review Body at BIOPOLIS-CIBIO. JA published 2 book chapters and 96 papers in SCI-indexed journals, including high-rank journals (Q1), such as Science (1), PLoS Pathogens (3), Scientific Reports (3), Journal of Virology (2), Molecular Ecology (1), among others. Furthermore, she obtained ~0.6M EUR of salary grants, ~1.4M EUR from project grants as PI, and ~2M EUR as team member in national and international project grants (totalling ca. 4M EUR). Projects as PI involve national and international academic collaborations and partners from rabbit-associated industry. She works in Biological and Veterinary Sciences with emphasis in Virology and Evolution; her main research areas include: host-pathogen co-evolution, animal viruses, virus evolution, virus spillover, epidemiology, immunology and immunogenetics. She has experience as supervisor/co-supervisor of PhD, MSc and undergraduate students. Her engagement in scientific activities include the organisation of workshops and participation in conferences, both at the national and international level. She has been active in outreach and science education activities, giving lectures to the public, participating in media interviews and TV shows, and providing press releases.
