Tainá Fonseca is a post-doctoral research assistant at the Centre for Marine and Environmental Research (CIMA) of the University of Algarve - Portugal, where she obtained her PhD in Marine, Earth and Environmental Sciences (2019), focused in Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology. She is developing a multidisciplinary approach involving ecotoxicology, oncobiology, biochemistry and risk assessment with the aim to evaluate the impacts of pharmaceuticals discharged into marine ecosystems. Her research interests are currently devoted to the environmental risks and ecotoxicological impacts caused by emerging contaminants and threats, particularly pharmaceuticals, on non-target marine organisms, integrated in the metadiscipline of Oceans and Human Health, in an attempt to unravel the complex linkages with the risks and benefits to human health. In addition, efforts are dedicated on the application of alternative in-vitro methods based on the use of marine and human cell lines, in order to reduce the use of experimental organisms. Specialized in conducting in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro techniques to evaluate drugs´ responses over biochemical biomarkers of marine invertebrate species, namely, polychaetes, sea-urchins, amphipods, mussels and clams. Dr. Tainá has taken part in national and international collaborations, including Brazil, France and Spain. She co-supervised one MSc thesis (Portugal), working in biomedical and environmental issues, particularly related to the detrimental effects elicited by relevant concentrations of pharmaceuticals in the coastal ecosystems.
