Ana M. Urbano, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Life Sciences at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and a Senior Scientist at the Molecular Physical Chemistry Research Unit of the same university. She is currently teaching courses on Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry and Laboratorial Biochemistry. She graduated in Biochemistry at the University of Coimbra (1989), where she later gained her MSc in Cell Biology (1993). Part of her MSc research was conducted, as an Erasmus student, at Delft Technical University. She then received a D. Phil from the University Cambridge, UK (1999), where she conducted research on mammalian cell bioenergetics. Her main research interests are bioenergetics and oncobiology. Her group has been investigating the impact of hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] exposure on the energy metabolism of human lung cells and on their resistance to stress, aiming at a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the toxicity of this occupational lung carcinogen. Other research interests include the mechanisms by which exercise contributes to cancer prevention. Her strong interest in (onco)metabolism led her to (co)organise the 16th Charles Heidelberger Symposium on Cancer Research (2010) and two editions (2017 and 2019) of a FEBS Advanced Lecture Course devoted to oncometabolism. Recently, she co-edited a special issue on oncometabolism, entitled Oncometabolism: The Switchboard of Cancer, which was published in Biochimica Biophysyca Acta Molecular Basis of Disease. Ana Urbano has supervised 19 graduation projects and 10 MSc/PhD theses (some ongoing), (co)authored 25+ peer-reviewed research papers/reviews/book chapters and co-edited 2 special issues. She has also been a reviewer for 15 different scientific journals and 1 funding agency.
