Global Partner Feature: Cláudia Melo

This blog features one of the most active Oncofertility Global Partners, Cláudia Melo, who is a PhD student at the University of Coimbra. She has been an actively engaged member of the community and her work has resulted in a number of publications, and she has provided us with a number of translations to her native Portuguese. Her most recent publication Portuguese oncologists' practices regarding female fertility preservation: Which barriers most relate to these practices? aims to investigate the current practice patterns of Portuguese oncologists with different clinical specialties regarding female fertility preservation and to determine the relative endorsement of different barriers to these practices. We asked Cláudia to briefly introduce herself and share more about her passion for the filed of oncofertility.
