Scientist: Diogo Martins Branco, M.D.
Diogo has been a board-certified medical oncologist since March 2019. During his oncology fellowship training, he completed a Master in Palliative Care from King’s College London. His research project was dedicated to models of care at the end-of-life. After completing his medical oncology fellowship, he began a Fellowship of Scientific Communication at Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal where he had close contact with patient advocacy groups which provided him with a better understanding of the patient perspective in translational cancer research.
Since January 2021, he has been working in Brussels, Belgium, as a medical research fellow at the Academic Trials Promoting Team and Clinical Trials Support Unit of Institut Jules Bordet. Here he works in the conceptualization, design, protocol development, implementation, and medical monitoring of clinical trials, both investigator-initiated, and industry sponsored as academic partners.
