Enzymatic synthesis of biodegradable amphiphilic polymer-drugs for cancer treatment
PhD Student Fellow, 2019-present, SFRH/BD/144303/2019
This PhD plan includes in silico systematic exploration of the polymer-drug conjugates that can be enzymatically obtained, assessment of drug release profiles and protein reengineering that will be later experimentally assayed, chemically characterized and tested in vitro.
Rational design of a thermostable esterase for the production of high-value bioplastics for biomedical applications
Research Fellow, 2018-2019, MIT-EXPL/ISF/0021/2017
This project is focused on the design of customized thermostable enzyme to produce high-value biopolymers for biomedical applications.
