Ana Baião
PhD Student

Ana Baião is graduated in Biomedical Pharmacy by the Faculty of Pharmacy of University of Coimbra (2017) and holds a master's degree in Molecular Biomedicine from University of Aveiro (2019). The master's dissertation of Ana Baião was conducted at i3S (Porto, Portugal) under the supervision of Prof. Odete Silva and scientific supervision of Prof. Bruno Sarmento, and resulted in a published paper in the high-impact journal Biomaterials Science. In 2020, she was selected for a research scholarship at i3S where she had integrated projects related to oral delivery of resveratrol, implantable drug delivery systems and ocular drug delivery. In 2021, she was awarded with an honorable research scholarship from Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro - Núcleo Regional do Norte (LPCC-NRN) which provided her the opportunity to continue to work at i3S in the field of nanomedicine and targeted drug delivery applied to cancer treatment. In 2022, she started her PhD in the Doctoral Programme on Cellular and Molecular Biotechnology Applied to Health Sciences (BiotechHealth), at Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar, University of Porto (ICBAS-UP).
