Professional practices Luisa Antunes endorses's Professional Guidelines.

A molecular microbiologist-turned linguist with a passion for science communication

I am a Portuguese native translator with a PhD in clinical microbiology and 10 years of experience in biomedical research, including infectious diseases, epidemiology, antibiotic resistance, bacterial evolution, genomics and biotechnology.

I am also a natural communicator, trained in a variety of communication channels, including medical translations, scientific writing, academic teaching and international group presentations.

I have lived and worked in seven European countries (Portugal, the UK, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Germany and Austria) and have acquired a clear understanding of the cultural nuances of Portuguese, British, French and Italian societies, allowing for a mature comprehension and adaptation of different communication styles to fit specific target audiences.

My combined expertise assures that your projects are met with the eye and accuracy of a true specialist in the field.
