Research Interests

Luísa Mateus research interests focus on the application of analytical toxicology, mainly in the field of occupational and food toxicology, to evaluate the exposure to xenobiotics and to study biomarkers of exposure and effect. Head of Bloco Instrumental laboratory (BI) since several years, is actively involved in providing services to several private companies. The analyzes carried out in BI are request from different areas, with greater prevalence of the pharmaceutical industry.
