Research Interests

Lídia Gonçalves is a team member of the NanoBB group. Gonçalves works focused on the development of new 3D systems (micro/nano structures) for drug delivery, including drug stabilization and targeting. Her research also involves antigen delivery using particulate adjuvants for modulating the immune response to complex antigens, as well as enhancing local immunity.

Gonçalves expertise on in vitro high-throughput biological assays, biotechnological process and animal experimentation has allowed the establishment of collaboration work within iMed.ULisboa and also with other external research groups. This collaborating work has been protected by patents.
