Dr. Bruno Sarmento


Bruno Sarmento is the Group Leader of the Nanomedicines and Translational Drug Delivery group at Institute of Biomedical Enginering/Institute for Investigation and Innovation in Health (INEB/i3S), University of Porto, Portugal and Assistant Professor at IUCS/CESPU.

His current research is focused on the development of functionalized nanomedicines and their application in the pharmaceutical and biomedical fields. In particular, he is interested in the establishment of nanoformulations of advanced functional biomaterials and understand their interaction with cells and biological surfaces, with interest in diabetes, cancer and infectious diseases. He has also specialized in mucosal tissue engineering models to validate functionalized nanomedicines and to perform in vitro/in vivo correlation.

He published more than 220 papers in international peer reviewed (ISI) journals (H.index 36), 37 book chapters and more than 250 presentations in International Congresses. He edited 5 books in the field of nanomedicine, biomaterials and biological barriers.

He is member of the Editorial Advisory Board of several international journals and has acted as referee for top-ranked journals and funding agencies.
