Daniela Rodrigues was born on March 1st 1993 in Porto, Portugal. In 2011, she started her Bachelor in Biochemistry at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. After finishing her BSc degree in 2014, she started her Master degree in Analytical Clinical and Forensic Toxicology at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Porto. Here, she worked on a project that focused on investigating potential in vitro biomarkers for bladder cancer through application of Metabolomics as a promise tool for the development of early, specific diagnosis methods for that malignancy. During her Master degree, she had also published two review articles as first author about the research that has been made so far on biomarkers for bladder and renal cancers. After graduating in 2016, she participated in Tox-Oer Erasmus+ program, a project that aims to design and develop an international Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Toxicology. In this project, she was responsible for the elaboration of several classes/videos about Toxicology general concepts, metabolism of xenobiotics, mechanism of xenobiotics transport and their potential toxic effects in the organism.

In July 2016, she started working as a PD student at Toxicogenomics Department of Maastricht University. Here she will work as a part of a larger EU project, TransQST, in which she will evaluate drug-induced adverse responses of certain drugs in cultured human organoid models and establish transcriptomic signatures to generate a multi-scale QST model for intestinal toxicity.
