Graduate Program in Areas of Basic and Applied Biology
University of Porto


Dr Canario graduated in Medicine at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal in 2008 and, in 2016, she finished her residency in Medical Oncology, at the Instituto Português de Oncologia de Coimbra, Portugal.

She is board certified in Medical Oncology by the Portuguese Medical Council. During her training, she was granted a 6-month Clinical Fellowship from the European School of Oncology, and worked under the supervision of Dr Susana Banerjee at the Gynae-Oncology Unit of the Royal Marsden Hospital, London, in 2013.

Currently, she has been accepted in a PhD programme financially supported by the National Foundation for Science and Technology, at the University of Porto (GABBA programme: Graduate Programme in Areas of Basic and Applied Biology), Portugal.

Her interest in the care articulation between Oncology and Palliative Care has led her to conclude with distinction a MSc in Palliative Care at the Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London, where she developed a research project about complex palliative care needs in cancer, that was presented at the European Cancer Congress in 2015. She is part of the DINAMO Project, led by Dr Barbara Gomes and funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, an advanced training and research project that aims to optimise home palliative care in Portugal.
