Silvina Ribeiro-Samy's Biography

Silvina Ribeiro-Samy, Researcher, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL)

Silvina Samy is a cell biology and microfluidics researcher. She obtained her Master degree in Applied Biochemistry – Biotechnology specialization – (2015), Post-graduate degree in Health Sciences (2012) and Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry (2010) from the University of Minho (Portugal); and her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the Health School of Viseu - Polytechnic Institute of Viseu (Portugal). Silvina started her research career investigating and developing distinct 3D therapeutic strategies aimed for spinal cord injuries and peripheral nerve regeneration; exploring the knowledge from the fields of Tissue Engineering, Neurosciences and Stem Cells Research at the 3B’s Research Group (Portugal) and the Life and Health Sciences Research Institute (ICVS, Portugal). Later, she joined the Unit of Neuronal Regeneration of the Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII, Spain) for a 6 months traineeship in the framework of INOV Contacto (Portuguese government program). Recently, during her master project she focused on the design, testing and optimization of microfluidic platforms for nucleic acid separation and purification aimed for research and quality control purposes. In March 2016, she joined the Biomicrofluidics research group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) as a research assistant focused on the isolation of rare cells using microfluidics. Currently, Silvina is also enrolled in the International Doctoral Programme in Molecular and Cellular Biotechnology Applied to Health Sciences (BiotechHealth) from the University of Porto (Portugal) together with the Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar (Portugal).
