Joana Lourenço completed her PhD in Molecular Biology and Genetics in 2012/07/13 by the University of Aveiro and obtained her Degree in Biology in 2006 by the University of Évora. She is a Researcher in the University of Aveiro in the research unit CESAM. She has published 27 articles in Q1 international peer reviewed journals and 1 book chapter and so far she has reviewed papers for 13 high quality scientific journals all Q1. Until now, she has supervised 5 MSc dissertation(s) and co-supervised 1 and in 2012 an award for best oral presentation in an international conference. She works in the area(s) of radiobiology, particularly on the effects of ionizing radiation on humans (Genotoxicity; Gene expression profiling and mutation analysis; DNA repair) and also on the area of environmental toxicology applied to radioecogenotoxicology (namely on uranium mines), particularly on the effects of exposure to ionizing radiation and metals on bioindicator species (Genotoxicity; Gene expression profiling and mutation analysis; DNA repair). Also she is a member of the European Radioecology Alliance (ALLIANCE) and she is also integrated in the National group of support to the analysis of Horizon Europe to specifically comment the EURATOM Research and Training Programme for the period 2021-2025 complementing Horizon Europe ¿ The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. In her curriculum Ciência Vitae the most frequent terms in the context of scientific output are: Bystander effect; Uranium mine effluent; Environmental risk assessment; Radiobiology; Uranium mines; Radiation - Molecular Biomarkers; Uranium; Metals; Radionuclides; Genotoxicity; Biomarkers; Single/mixture toxicity; DNA damage; Reproduction; Feeding inhibition; Synergism/antagonism; histopathological effects; Earthworms; Gene expression; Bioaccumulation; SNPs; Biology; Genetic Toxicology; Uranium residues; Environmental Health; Genotoxicity; PAH; SSH; Environment and Global Changes - Environment; Radioecology; Radiation .

In the environment, chemical substances appear as complex mixtures and consequently organisms are exposed to a variety of chemicals from different sources (e.g. wastewater treatment plants, agriculture runoffs). When studying chemical mixtures, there are two conceptual models usually used to predict toxicity: the Independent Action (IA) and Concentration Addition (CA) models.

SSH gene expression profile of Eisenia andrei exposed in situ to a naturally contaminated soil from an abandoned uranium mine. The effects of the exposure of earthworms (Eisenia andrei) to contaminated soil from an abandoned uranium mine, were assessed through gene expression profile evaluation by Suppression Subtractive Hybridization (SSH). Organisms were exposed in situ for 56 days, in containers placed both in a contaminated and in a non-contaminated site (reference). Organisms were sampled after 14 and 56 days of expo. http://hdl.handle.net/10773/24552.

Genotoxic effects caused by the exposure to wastes containing metals and radionuclides were investigated in the European wood mice (Apodemus sylvaticus). The animals were captured in the surroundings of an abandoned uranium mining site. DNA damage was assessed by comet assay; gene expression and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were assessed, respectively, by Real-Time PCR and melt curve ana. http://hdl.handle.net/10773/24271.
