José Tamagno

Research Fellow
Medical Devices

Tamagno Pesqueira is a Junior Research Fellow at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) Braga, Portugal (2020 – now). He works within the Medical Devices group and his research focuses on the development of an automated microfluidic platform for the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer.

Tamagno Pesqueira holds a BSc degree in Bioengineering (2010-2013, Univ. of Beira Interior) and Integrated Masters in Biomedical Engineering field of Biomaterials, Rehabilitation, and Biomechanics (2013-2017, Univ. of Minho). His research gathers experience in engineering biomaterials/platforms combined with cells towards the development of translation concepts to be used in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. He has authored 7 peer-reviewed publications and 6 oral presentations in conferences.
