PRISMAP Young Scientist Event – November 2022

At the occasion of the PRISMAP Consortium Meeting 4, we are bringing together young scientists in person to share their work and passion with each other and with the rest of the consortium. Come along to our consortium meeting, or simply present yourself and your work!

We invite you to bring a poster about any research that would be relevant to our consortium:

  • Radioisotope production and purification;
  • Nuclear data for medical radioisotopes;
  • Radiopharmaceutical synthesis;
  • Radiobiology;
  • Pre-clinical and clinical research with radionuclides;
  • Transport and logistics of medical radionuclides;
… or any other material you would like to bring to our attention!

In preparation for the European Symposium on Radiopharmacy and Radiopharmaceuticals, held in Verona from Thursday 24 November in the evening, we are also proposing a pre-symposium to give the necessary context to young participants. Filipa Mendes will discuss Preclinical evaluation of radiopharmaceuticals. In this lecture the basic aspects of preclinical evaluation of diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals will be discussed. An overview of the several steps of in vitro and in vivo evaluation strategies will be presented, as well as the cellular and animal models appropriate to study (targeted) radiopharmaceuticals.

If you want to submit a poster, please specify its title and abstract below.

Filipa Mendes is Assistant Researcher at the Department of Nuclear Sciences and Engineering (DECN) and member of the Centre for Nuclear Sciences and Technologies (C2TN) of the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisboa, Portugal. She completed a PhD in Cellular Biology at the Faculty of Sciences of ULisboa in December 2004, with the experimental work performed as a visiting graduate student at the University of Virginia, USA. During the post-doctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Health in Lisboa she received 2 awards: the Gulbenkian Award “Estímulo à Investigação” and the L'Oréal Medal of Honour for Women in Science.
She joined the Radiopharmaceutical Sciences Group of IST in 2008, and her multidisciplinary scientific activity is focused in molecular imaging and therapy, and in particular in the pre-clinical evaluation of non-invasive cancer probes. She is interested in the biological assessment of radioactive compounds for cancer theranostics in advanced 3D cellular models. She participated in more than 20 national and EU projects, as co-PI, task supervisor or team member, and was/is the PI of 3 projects and 1 industry research contract. She is the author of 68 publications in peer-reviewed journals with over 1600 citations, 2 book chapters and more than 100 communications. Filipa Mendes has supervised 5 MSc and 1 PhD to completion and currently supervises/co-supervises 3 MSc and 3 PhD students.
