Soft and biofunctional materials group
Junior Researcher
249 Ed.I 240 Ed.I 10569


Tânia Vieira received her PhD in Bioengineering in Faculty of Sciences and Technology - New University of Lisbon. Her thesis was based on the synthesis and characterization of new biodegradable and biocompatible polyurethanes, the processing of the polyurethanes in fibrous mats and the interaction of the mats with stem cells. She currently works as a postdoctoral researcher at CENIMAT in FCT – UNL in a project that aims to design a fully functional skin substitute.  Her main research interests are related to the production and characterization of scaffolds for application in tissue engineering and the interaction of the scaffolds with cells.
