Dr Daniela Pereira-Carvalho
Dr Daniela Pereira Carvalho is a Research Associate within the Peter Gorer Department of Immunobiology and the Department of Women and Children's Health at the Guy's and St Thomas' hospitals. Daniela completed her PhD at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2022, including one year as a visiting PhD student at the University of Cambridge in 2021.
Before commencing at the King’s College London in 2023, Daniela's research focussed on translational research related to pregnancy associated conditions, such as maternal infection, and changes in fetal and placental growth. Now at the King’s College London, Daniela is working on the Prenatal Drivers of Infant Islet Cell Autoimmunity (PISA) study. Her aim is to investigate the impact of different maternal exposures on the development of islet autoimmunity in infants, identifying relationships between the in utero inflammatory environment and the risk of T1D development.
