Ana André is a Post-doc Researcher currently working at CIIMAR in the scope of the project CORAL - Sustainable Ocean Exploitation: Tools and Sensors, with a research grant (BI), where she is responsible for using cell-based in vitro transactivation assays for nuclear receptor proteins functional characterization in the presence of putative natural ligands and xenobiotics. Her main research interests focus on get insights regarding the evolution of nuclear receptor signaling pathways and its modulation by endocrine disrupting chemicals and emerging contaminants Risk assessment, and evaluation and monitoring water quality.
