Research Fellow
Medical Devices

Carlos Honrado joined the Medical Devices group at INL in November 2021 as a Research Fellow. His research interests include the development of microfluidic devices for biomedical use, including label-free techniques for single-cell sorting and analysis, dielectric characterization of cells and technology integration. At INL, his research will focus on the development of novel platforms to mimic tumoral microenvironment of metastatic colorectal cancer patients for disease monitoring and to inform therapeutic approach.

Carlos obtained his MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minho in 2014, with his thesis being completed during an ERASMUS exchange period at the University of Southeastern Norway. He obtained his PhD from the University of Southampton in 2018, focusing on label-free single particle analysis and separation, and performed further research on this thematic as a Research Associate at the University of Virginia (2018 to 2021). Since 2014, he has authored 17 peer-reviewed publications, 13 of which as first author (h-index=9), and presented at multiple international conferences. He has also participated in science outreach events for research dissemination, and has 4 filed patents.
