Ana Rute Neves is a postdoctoral researcher at the Molecular Biophysics and Biotechnology Unit of the Rede de Quimica e Tecnologia (REQUIMTE) research center, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto, Portugal. She obtained her bachelor's and master's degrees in biochemistry from the Faculty of Sciences and Abel Salazar Biomedical Sciences Institute, University of Porto, in 2007 and 2009, respectively, and her PhD in pharmaceutical sciences from the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto, in 2015. She is the author of several peer-reviewed articles in international journals, one paper in a science dissemination journal, one conference proceeding, and four invited book chapters and the editor of one book series. She also has one submitted patent. Currently, Dr. Neves is an executive researcher for two ongoing funded R&D projects (FCT and Norte 2020). Her research focuses on biophysical and biochemical approaches to studying the interaction of phytochemicals with biomembranes and the development of nanoparticles as drug delivery systems to create new and more effective therapies for a range of diseases and administration routes. Salette Reis is director of the Department of Chemical Sciences and group leader of the Molecular Biophysics and Biotechnology Unit, REQUIMTE. She obtained her bachelor's degree in pharmaceutical sciences and her PhD in analytical chemistry from the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto, in 1984 and 1995, respectively. Dr. Reis is the author of almost 200 peer-reviewed articles in international journals and several book chapters and the editor of one book series. She has participated in several funded R&D projects as principal investigator. Her research focuses on biophysics and pharmaceutical chemistry in the use of biomimetic membrane models to study the effect of drugs on biological membranes and the development of nanocarriers for drug delivery.
