Vanessa Cardoso

Scientific Associate

Vanessa Cardoso is an FCT postdoctoral researcher at the CMEMS and CFUM of the University of Minho. She joined the Nanochemistry Research Group at INL in 2017 as a Scientific Associate to work on the development of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles and composites. She received the M.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering with specialization in medical electronics in 2008, and the Ph.D. degree in 2012, all from the University of Minho, Portugal. Her research has been focused on the design and fabrication of microfluidic platforms for biomedical applications and in the development of functionalized nanoparticles for protein purification and drug delivery. Further, she has been also working on polymer-based smart materials for sensors, actuators and membranes applications. She was a visiting scientist at the IBMT (St Ingbert, DE); INA (Zaragoza, ES); IITJ (Jodhpur, IND) and BCMaterials (Bilbao, ES).
