Adriana Costa was born in Barcelos. She completed her degree in Psychology at the University of Aveiro (2013) and her master’s degree in Neuropsychology at the Catholic University of Lisbon (2020) with public defense of the thesis “Autism traits in a non-clinical population: detection, discrimination and olfactory identification”.

In 2018 she did work as a student researcher, in the context of collaboration in the work leading to a PhD thesis “Cerebral small vessel disease: new tools for preclinical risk assessment and preventive management”, carried out at CHUSJ.

In 2019, she decides to join her passion for clinical practice and her interest in research by attending the research fellowship within the NEON-PC activities: Neuro-oncological complications of prostate cancer: longitudinal study of cognitive decline (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-032358).

She is currently a PhD student in Public Health (Faculty of Medicine, University of Porto), with a fellowship from the Foundation for Science and Technology (2021.06280.BD) for the thesis project entitled “Cognitive decline in prostate cancer survivors: identification of factors contributing to non-fatal outcomes of cancer”. She is a member of the Cancer Epidemiology Laboratory.
