Postdoctoral Fellow (FCT)
Group at CNC

Susana Rosa scientific activity main domain is Cellular and Molecular Biology. The work developed to conclude her PhD Thesis and posteriorly as an assistant researcher conducted to the publication of 14 scientific articles in international peer reviewed journals. Presently as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomaterials and Stem Cell-Based Therapeutics groups her main interests are the study of the biology and differentiation of induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) into endothelial cells and cardiomyocytes and tissue engineered platforms for endothelial differentiation of hiPSCs and cardiomyocytes maturation.




Area of Research: 

Study of the differentiation potential of induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) in vacular cells, namelly endothelial cells and cardiomyocytes;

Interaction and functionality of the differentiated cells with biomaterials that mimic endothelial cells and cardiomyocytes extracellular matrix (ECM)

Research Summary:
Selected Publications:
