Since January 2010 is an Assistant Professor of the Anatomy Department of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar at the University of Porto and researcher at INEB. Judite´s research work is focused on the biological response observed after the implantation of a biomaterial, specifically on the inflammatory response triggered. Her research work is focused on the central role of macrophages in the inflammatory response that occurs after the implantation of a biomaterial and its influence on the subsequent repair and regeneration processes.
