Introduction
I have a graduation in Biomedical Sciences (2016) and a master’s degree in clinical Biochemistry (2018) by the University of Aveiro, Portugal. I'm currently a PhD Student at BioPol4Fun group (CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materiais), and my research interests include the innovative use of biopolymers, biomaterials and biotechnology for biomedical and drug-delivery applications.

In this study, alginate nanocomposite hydrogel bioinks reinforced with lysozyme nanofibers (LNFs) were developed. Alginate-LNF (A-LNF) suspensions with different LNF contents (1, 5 and 10 wt.%) were prepared and pre-crosslinked with 0.5% (w/v) CaCl2 to formulate A-LNF inks. These inks exhibit proper shear-thinning behavior and good recovery propert...

Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting is an innovative technology in the biomedical field, allowing the fabrication of living constructs through an approach of layer-by-layer deposition of cell-laden inks, the so-called bioinks. An ideal bioink should possess proper mechanical, rheological, chemical, and biological characteristics to ensure high cell...

Cellulose, the most abundant natural polymer, is a versatile polysaccharide that is being exploited to manufacture innovative blends, composites, and hybrid materials in the form of membranes, films, coatings, hydrogels, and foams, as well as particles at the micro and nano scales. The application fields of cellulose micro and nanoparticles run the...
Chapter
The inevitable augment of food demand, due to the growing world population, is contributing to the expansion of the global market of packaging materials. Thus, the active packaging concept emerges as an instrument to boost the safety, quality, and shelf-life of the packaged foods. In this context, the present chapter will provide a review on the la...

Antibacterial multi-layered patches composed of an oxidized bacterial cellulose (OBC) membrane loaded with dexpanthenol (DEX) and coated with several chitosan (CH) and alginate (ALG) layers were fabricated by spin-assisted layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly. Four patches with a distinct number of layers (5, 11, 17, and 21) were prepared. These nanostruc...

Hypertension is a major and highly prevalent risk factor for various diseases. Among most frequently prescribed antihypertensive first‐line drugs are synthetic angiotensin I‐converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI). However, since their use in hypertension therapy has been linked to various side effects, the interest on the potential of food‐derived ACE...

Nanostructured patches composed of bacterial nanocellulose (BNC), hyaluronic acid (HA) and diclofenac (DCF) were developed, envisioning the treatment of aphthous stomatitis. Freestanding patches were prepared via diffusion of aqueous solutions of HA and DCF, with different concentrations of DCF, into the wet BNC three-dimensional porous network. Th...

Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) membranes have enormous potential as systems for topical drug delivery due to their intrinsic biocompatibility and three-dimensional nanoporous structure, which can house all kinds of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Thus, the present study investigated the long-term storage stability of BNC membranes loaded w...
