The Biomolecular Engineering Group @ REQUIMTE (FCT/UNL) develops affinity reagents and stimuli-responsive platforms to be applied in the Bioseparation, Biosensing and Biomedical areas. Molecular modeling tools and combinatorial strategies are employed on the development of novel affinity reagents, which target biological molecules and particulates with biopharmaceutical applications. The stimuli-responsive structures, in particular magnetic nanoparticles, are custom-made according to the desired application.
