Training Fellowship in Drug Delivery Systems-2019

Universidade Lusófona, Lisboa Portugal (EU)
CBIOS (Lusófona’s Research Center for Biosciences and Health Technologies)

One training research position is available in the Nanoscience and Tecnhology Lab at CBIOS of Universidade Lusófona.

CBIOS is a research unit that currently has 30 faculty members, 16 PhD students, a wide range of external collaborators, and over 30 projects running, (more at producing interdisciplinary and translational research in 3 main domains:

  • Pharmacology and Therapeutics(where our lab is inserted)
  • Food Science and Phytochemistry
  • Development and Deliveryof Systems

Trainees in this CBIOS fellowship will have access to a variety of techniques including HPLC, TLC, atomic absorption, FT-IR, RMN, spectrophotometry, photon correlation spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, electrophoretic light scattering and all techniques related to skin biometrics.

Several preparation methods of drug delivery systems (polymeric, lipidic, metallic, ceramic, superparamagnetic, hybrids, etc.) have been developed and compared in our laboratory through cell culture models, animal and human models.

Several related analytical tools according international guidelines are being currently explored.

The group’s research interests are centered in Drug Delivery Systems but this lab also offers complementary training in Non-Drug Delivery Systems (such as food supplements and cosmetics) and methods to assess its efficacy and safety.

All candidates will be considered, although special consideration will be given to individuals who have: 1) a solid academic background including, if possible, special interest in Drug Delivery Systems, 2) good communication skills (written/spoken English), 3) interest and, if possible, previous research experience working in Drug Delivery Systems, 4) a keen desire to learn.

Candidates eligible for this CBIOS fellowship will benefit for a “zero” fees policy enjoying all the means offered to the university students. After the 1stsemester evaluation, facilitate access to our PhD (European Title) program in Health Sciences (partnership with U Alcalá, Spain) is possible.
