Fátima Pinto Defends PhD Thesis in Bioengineering | iBB | Scoop.it

Fátima Pinto will be defending her PhD thesis in Bioengineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, wednesday the 10th October 2018 (15:30 H, room PA3). During the last years, and under the supervision of Luís Fonseca and Dragana Barros from BERG-iBB, Fátima focused her attention on the development and characterization of biodegradable nanocarriers to be incorporated in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical or cosmeceutical formulations for the targeted release of bioactive substances. The title of her thesis is "Design and Characterization of Lipid Nanoparticles for an Effective Topical Administration of Active Compounds”.

Dragana Barros, will be giving a talk entitled “Surface functionalization of silica- and micro- structured capsules”, Monday the 3rd April, at 12h30m, in room QA1.3, South Tower, IST (Alameda). The seminar will highlight progress made on the use of Silica capsules (SC) are ideal candidates for bioencapsulation studies, because they are a non-toxic and biocompatible material (GRAS). Dragana is currently a Pos-doc at BERG-iBB. Her research has focused on the areas of applications of miniemulsions system in nanocarriers and biopolymer synthesis, and molecular studies of protein-solvent and protein –protein interactions in biphasic systems. The talk is included in the 2nd Edition of iBB seminars.
