Experiência Profissional

Desde 2006: Investigadora Auxiliar do CESAM (Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar), Departamento de Biologia, Universidade de Aveiro, Portugal.


2005-2006: Professor Auxiliar Convidado (50%), no Departmento de Biologia, Universidade de Aveiro.


2004-2006: Pos-Doutoramento na Universidade de Antuérpia, Belgica, a desenvolver o projeto "Molecular Tools for Avoidance Behaviour Assessment in Terrestrial Toxicology".


Experiência:


- Investigador científico principal e gestor de projetos;


- Orientação diária de alunos de doutoramento;


- Organização de reuniões, cursos, grupos de trabalho, seminários;

Área de actividade Científica

Principal: Ecotoxicology: Several years were devoted to the development of an active research programme in ecotoxicology, mostly terrestrial, in field and laboratory, addressing a series of both fundamental and pre-normative research questions. In the area of soil ecotoxicology research activities include the development of the avoidance behaviour test, genomic tools and use of multi-species tests; refinement of existing protocols and development of new bioassays to assess soil contamination. Additionally, has developed and implemented in E. albidus a behavioural test - avoidance test - having shown its high ecological relevance.


DOMAIN OF SPECIALIZATION


Present research interests: Ecotoxicogenomics: Extensive progresses have taken place since 2006, such as the development and the enrichment of a new microarray, developed for the first time for an Enchytraeid (E. albidus)[1], and is now an Agilent custom platform. At present E. crypticus was subject of a massive parallel sequencing (454-pyrosequencing) and a high gradient Nimblegen microarray is being validated. [1] http://bioinformatics.ua.pt/enchybase/


Nanotoxicology: Collaborating with both national and international experts in the area. Developments in soil nanotoxicology, which are far less studied than in water media, present particular challenges. Investigation is progressing (3 publications 2011) and rapidly moving. 


Other skills/activities: Standardisation of new guidelines, and joining ring tests that precede it, such as the Bioacumulation in Oligochaetes, Collembolan Reproduction test (addition of a new test species) or the Evaluation of a biotest battery for the ecotoxicological characterisation of waste and waste eluates. Promoted and optimized the development of novel avoidance behaviour tests for Enchytraeids, having initially produced 3 papers that kicked research in this topic with other species.

DESTAQUE

Investigadora da Universidade de Aveiro eleita vice-presidente da SETAC Europa em 2013. Mónica Amorim, investigadora no Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar (CESAM) e no Departamento de Biologia (DBio) da Universidade de Aveiro, foi eleita vice-presidente da Society of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (SETAC) para a Europa. Mónica Amorim tomará posse em Glasgow, durante o Congresso Anual da SETAC Europe, que decorre entre os dias 12 a 16 de maio de 2013.


A Investigadora do CESAM e DeBio, Mónica Amorim, contribuiu com um capítulo para o livro “Ecotoxicological Characterization of Waste” da editora Springer. Este livro apresenta a contextualização e organização, proposta de metodologias e divulga resultados e recomendações sobre a avaliação ecotoxicologica dos resíduos na UE, bem como a respectiva comparação com os dados disponíveis na literatura. Em 2001 é publicada a Lista de Resíduos Europeus (Decisão do Conselho 2000/532/CE de 23 de Julho 2001) que estabelece a classificação de “perigosos” ou “não perigosos” de acordo com as propriedades ecotoxicológicas dos resíduos. Ainda que este instrumento deva ser transposto para a legislação nacional de cada estado membro, não são fornecidas quaisquer metodologias ou recomendações para a avaliação da ecotoxicidade dos resíduos. Esta publicação resulta de uma série testes laboratoriais desenvolvidos por 67 laboratórios de 15 países diferentes, adaptando as directrizes ISO, para os compartimentos terrestre e aquático, incluindo a avaliação genotóxica. A Doutora Mónica Amorim foi responsável pelos estudos desenvolvidos na Universidade de Aveiro). Mais informações: http://www.springer.com/enviro.....
