Research Interests

Catarina Reis is a team member of the Nano2B. Her research involves a multidisciplinary platform; it has been focused on design, development and biological evaluation of drug delivery systems for oral, dermal and transdermal delivery, with special interest on metallic and polymeric nanocarriers. Other interests are the establishment of animal models of cancer and metabolic diseases like diabetes and, recently, the development of nanocarriers with natural products for the treatment of skin disorders such as melanoma or for skin care like cosmetics.
