PRIMO at i3S, Universidade de Porto
Jorge Ferreira (Group leader) and Vanessa Nunes (PHD Student) are testing PRIMO and starting to use it on their own. Here is there first test: photopolymerization of photocurable material shaped in the i3S logo.
My research work consists in understanding how microenvironmental cues influence, guide and shape cell-cell contacts. We are currently particularly interested in determining the role of the biophysical environment in the establishment of apico-basal polarity in mammary gland cells and in liver cells.
