Cátia Bandeiras to Defend PhD Thesis in Bioengineering

Cátia Bandeiras to Defend PhD Thesis in Bioengineering | iBB | Scoop.it

Cátia Filipa Medina Bandeiras will be defending her PhD thesis in Bioengineering (MIT Portugal Program) on Friday the 8th November 2019 (14 H, amphitheater PA-3, Mathematics Building). During the last years, and under the supervision of Frederico Ferreira from SCERG and BERG-IBB and Stan Finkelstein from MIT, Cátia developed an open-source framework for combined bioprocess and health economics modeling, aiming at the evaluation of stem cell engineering innovations towards the commercialization of stem cell-based therapies. She used this framework to evaluate the impact of manufacturing component choices, like culture media and expansion technologies, the scale of manufacturing, and the long-term cost-effectiveness of stem cell-based therapies for type 1 diabetes and cystic fibrosis. This computational approach, based on experimental data, provided cues for additional reductions in the cost of goods, and recommendations for precision medicine of these prospective therapies. The title of the thesis is “TESSEE – Tool for Early Stem Cells Economic Evaluation”

Rita Dias Guardão Moreira da Franca will be defending her PhD thesis in Biotechnology and Biosciences on tuesday the 5th November 2019 (14 H, amphitheater PA-3, Mathematics Building). During the last years, and under the supervision of Nídia Lourenço and Helena Pinheiro from BERG-IBB and Mark van Loosdrecht from TUDelft (The Netherlands), Rita studied the application of the novel aerobic granular sludge technology to the biodegradation of recalcitrant pollutants mainly found in textile industry wastewaters. She looked into the influence of wastewater composition and reactor operational regimens on the formation and stability of aerobic granules, microbial population dynamics in them and their performance in the biodegradation of wastewater components, namely an azo dye and its recalcitrant metabolites.

The title of the thesis is “Aerobic granular sludge bioprocesses for textile wastewater treatment”.
