Adelina Gama (ORCID 0000-0002-6655-3076) is an Assistant Professor of the Veterinary Sciences Department of the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (UTAD). She graduated in Veterinary Medicine at UTAD, in 1998, concluded her Master in Molecular Genetics in the Minho University, in 2003, and her PhD thesis in Veterinary Sciences, at UTAD, in 2008. Veterinary Anatomopathologist in the UTAD Laboratory of Histology and Anatomic Pathology since 2004. Author and co-author of several international scientific publications, especially in the area of mammary oncobiology, for the research of diagnostic and/or prognostic factors. The spontaneous tumours of the canine mammary gland constitute the main area of investigation.
