Paula Soares

Engineering magnetic nanoparticles
for cancer theranostics application

Paula is currently a Researcher of the Biomaterials group at Cenimat|i3N, in the Materials Science Department from NOVA School of Sciences & Technology, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. Paula received her Master degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Faculdade de Farmácia da Universidade de Lisboa in 2009. Paula finished her Ph.D. in Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences at Cenimat in 2015, supervised by Professor João Paulo Borges, Prof. Isabel Ferreira and Prof. Dr. Carlos Novo from IHMT/UNL.

Her Ph.D. work focused on the development of multifunctional nanoparticles suitable for cancer theranostics. Since 2017, Paula is the Principal Investigator of a National Research Project, DREaMM (Ref. PTDC/CTM- REF/30623/2017) which focus on the development of dual-stimuli responsive magnetic membranes for cancer theranostics application. Currently, her main research interests are related to development of new multifunctional magnetic systems for cancer theranostics application including magnetic hyperthermia, MRI and drug delivery.
