Where Ideas Grow
Paula Sampaio
Platform Head
Paula Sampaio graduated in Biochemistry and has a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Porto. She is a former visiting researcher in Cayetano Gonzalez's group at EMBL and former post-doctoral fellow at IBMC Molecular Genetics group headed by Prof. Claudio Sunkel where she studied the mechanisms of cell division. Presently, is the coordinator of the Advanced Light Microscopy scientific platform at i3S and national coordinator of the PPBI - Portuguese Platform of BioImaging, a national research infrastructure of strategic interest. At University of Porto, Paula Sampaio is invited Assistant Professor at Sciences Faculty and external professor at ICBAS teaching bio-imaging on Master courses and PhD. programs. She is also the organizer of the course series on Optical Microscopy Imaging for Biosciences and co-organizer of the EMBO course in Biomolecular Interaction Analysis. Paula Sampaio is member of management committees of COST actions Network of European BioImage Analysts (CA15124) and the COMULIS - Correlated Multimodal Imaging in Life Sciences (CA17121) and delegate of Portugal at Euro-Bioimaging ESFRI project
