PhD Student


Susana Costa completed her BSc degree in Biochemistry in 2017 and her MSc degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology in 2019, at the University of Coimbra. She published 1 article in a peer-reviewed journal. Her MSc thesis was developed at the "RNA & Infection" laboratory, under the supervision of Dr Ana Eulalio, at the Center for Neurosciences and Cell Biology (CNC-CIBB, University of Coimbra). This work allowed her to specialize in the study of host-pathogen interactions, the intracellular lifestyle of Salmonella Typhimurium and microRNAs. She has worked as a Research Fellow at the "RNA & Infection" and "Functional Genomics and RNA-Based Therapeutics" headed by Dr. Ana Eulalio and Dr. Miguel Mano, respectively. She is currently a PhD student in the PhD Programme in Experimental Biology and Biomedicine (PDBEB). Her PhD work is focused on identifying and characterizing host factors that regulate the intracellular lifestyle of various bacterial pathogens, including Salmonella.
