Position
Researcher

Marisa Freitas (MF) completed her PhD degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2010, in Faculty of Pharmacy of University of Porto. In 2012, MF was awarded with a post-Doc FCT fellowship. Since 2019, MF is an Assistant Researcher in the project "Use of flavonoids in the prophylaxis of intestinal pro-inflammatory effects of silver nanoparticles (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-029248). She has 70 publications in international journals, 4 book chapters, 40 oral communications (6 as invited speaker) and 100+ poster communications in national and international conferences. Her h-index is 25 and she has 1300+ citations. She presently is the PI and researcher of a scientific research project at LAQV@REQUIMTE.
