Ana Carolina Marques received her B.Sc degree in Applied Chemistry in 2012 and a M.Sc degree in Biochemistry in 2014, both from Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia. She is she is currently taking her Ph.D in Nanotechnologies and Nanoscience at CENIMAT/I3N under the subject “Nanobiosensing platform based on MIP-SERS for breast cancer exosome characterization and detection” with the supervision of Prof. Dra. Elvira Fortunato (CENIMAT) and co-supervision of Prof. Dra. Goreti Sales (BioMark) and Dr. Bruno Costa-Silva (Champalimaud Foundation).
Her current research interest includes the development and optimization of low cost polymeric-based sensors for optical and electrochemical detection: application to biosensors.
