PhD in Pharmaceutical Technology and degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal; Affiliated Researcher and Group Leader at Institute of Investigation and Innovation in Health (i3S) and Institute of Biomedical Engineering (INEB), University of Porto, Portugal; Assistant Professor at University Institute of Health Sciences (IUCS), Gandra, Portugal. His current research is focused on the development of functionalized nanomedicines and their application in the pharmaceutical and biomedical fields. In particular, nanoformulations of biopharmaceutical drugs with interest in diabetes, cancer and infectious diseases. He has also specialized in mucosal tissue engineering models to validate functionalized nanomedicines and to perform in vitro/in vivo correlation. So far, he has supervised/co-supervised 7 Post-Docs, 28 PhD students (10 completed) and 19 MSc students (17 completed), and 6 researcher assistants. He published more than 190 papers in international peer reviewed (ISI) journals, most in top journals (Q1 in Pharmaceutical Sciences; Q1 in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology; total citations 5300; H-index 34), 34 book chapters and more than 180 proceedings. He edited 5 books, participated in more than 50 invited/selected talks in national and international meetings and was awarded several distinctions. He is member of the Editorial Advisory Board of 12 international journals and has acted as referee for top-ranked journals in his area of expertise, and for international funding agencies.
