Her passion for research led her to pursue a Master of Science degree in 2016 and culminating in a PhD in Pathology from the University of Campinas, Brazil (2019). Throughout her academic pursuits, Dr. Miranda's training was funded by three prestigious international scholarships, which allowed her to expand her research endeavors to the University of Michigan between 2018 and 2019.
Since 2021, Dr. Miranda has served the Georgia Cancer Center as a clinical researcher. Her primary focus lies in the realm of clinical and translational studies within the field of hematology-oncology, with a particular emphasis on Myeloid Leukemia. She is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of patients and advancing the frontiers of medical knowledge through a blend of scientific inquiry, collaborative efforts, and an unwavering commitment to patient-centered care.
As a clinician and member of an underrepresented group, Dr. Miranda possesses a heightened awareness of the profound disparities in cancer survival that are often driven by Social Determinants of Health. Consequently, she maintains a special interest in meticulously evaluating and proactively addressing any potential disparities in cancer care and research that may disproportionately affect marginalized populations.
