Cristiana Ulpiano, MSc

iBB

My background consists of a Bachelor Degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology at Universidade Nova de Lisboa Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia (FCT-UNL) and a Master Degree in Biotechnology at Universidade de Lisboa, Instituto Superior Técnico (IST-UL). Throughout my studies, I concluded that my interest was mainly focused towards the Bioengineering component of gene and cell-based therapies.
Currently, I am second year student of the PhD program in Biotechnology and Biosciences (BIOTECnico) at IST-UL and my research is focused on engineering extracellular vesicles derived from mesenchymal stromal cells, to harbour anti-angiogenic molecules and explore their potential as an anti-cancer therapy.
