Personal profile

Biography

Cláudia S. Oliveira has a Degree in Biological Sciences (University of Ceara State, Fortaleza, Brazil), a Post-graduation course in Microbiology, a Master in Pathology of Tropical Diseases (Institute of Tropical Medicine, Federal University of Pará (UFPA), Brazil) and PhD in Pathology and Molecular Genetics (Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar (ICBAS), University of Porto, Portugal). During her PhD, she explored new targets for colorectal cancer prevention and therapy using 2D cell culture models. From 2019 to 2022, she worked at COMPASS Research Group (one of the most recognized groups in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine) at CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials, University of Aveiro, Portugal. During this time, she worked as a Post-Doctoral and as a Junior Researcher involved with 2 ERCs and 8 FCT projects. With expertise in Cell/Molecular Biology, and Medical Biotechnology, she explored the combination of umbilical cord (UC) derived cells and biomaterials to recreate specific humanized microenvironments with high biological complexity and regenerative properties. These bioengineered 3D models can provide new platforms for basic biology research (e.g., to study the mechanisms of bone formation, remodelling, hematopoiesis, immune response, vasculogenesis, and initiation/progression of bone-related pathologies), as well as new drug screening platforms, as an alternative to reduce animal experimentation, and several applications in regenerative medicine. In October of 2022, she accepted the challenge to participate as a Junior Researcher in the Be@t Projet - Bioeconomy at Textiles of European funds allocated to Portugal by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP). Since then, she has worked in strict collaboration between the Superior School of Biotechnology (UCP, Porto), CITEVE, and CENTI. In this new role, she has explored the main biological properties of different plant extracts to be coated in textiles aiming at the development of sustainable textiles with/without biomedical applications
