Diana Pinho is a Research Fellow at INL in the Nanodevices Group of Nanoelectronics Engineering Department. Her work is focused on the development of microfluidic systems and sensing platforms for automated cell sorting, in particular circulating tumour cells (CTCs) separation and detection. 3D microfluidic models are also one of the working progress.
Diana graduated in Biomedical Engineering and obtained her PhD in Mechanical Engineering (2018) from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto. The PhD research was focused on the visualization and measurements of blood cells flowing in microfluidic systems and blood rheology, healthy and pathological conditions. The development of blood analogue fluids and deformable microparticles was also addressed. Pinho D., through a postdoctoral position, worked also in the area of 3D printing process optimization and in the development of in vitro 3D models for cardiovascular pathologies studies.
