Nádia Filipa Durão da Silva completed her BSc. in Health Sciences (Radiotherapy) in 2010 from Polytechnic Institute of Porto. In 2012 began her collaboration with GRAQ from Associate Laboratory REQUIMTE-LAQV, where she developed the Master thesis in Computer Engineering and Medical Instrumentation finished in 2013 by the same institution. Recently, she concluded the PhD degree on Sustainable Chemistry, awarded by the University of Aveiro, Nova University of Lisbon and University of Porto (2020). At the present, she is researcher at the REQUIMTE-LAQV, at the University of Porto where she has been working on the development of rapid methodologies for detection of foodborne pathogenic bacteria using bacteriophage nanoparticles.
