Artur Pinto

Artur M. Pinto graduated in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Advanced Institute of Health Sciences (PT), obtaining his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Faculty of Engineering (FEUP), University of Porto (PT). His PhD work was carried out at Laboratory for Process Engineering, Environment, Biotechnology and Energy - FEUP, INEB-i3S, and University of Washington - Bioengineering Department - Buddy Ratner's Lab (US). The research focus was on production and characterization of graphene-based materials and their polymer composites, and study of the interaction between biomaterials and biological components.

Following his graduation, Artur has been appointed as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Materials and Interface Chemistry Lab (SMG) - Eindhoven University of Technology (NL), where he developed research work on graphene-based materials for electronic and biomedical applications, namely 3D printing of polymeric implants. Also, he was teaching assistant at Chemical Engineering and Chemistry Department (Nanotechnology course).

Currently, Artur is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at INEB-i3S, being Principal Investigator of the Foundation for Science and Technology R&D project "NovaDerma", whose work plan comprises the development of innovative biomaterials/drugs conjugates to be integrated in pharmaceutical formulations for the treatment of skin diseases, as basal cell carcinoma, psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis.
