Carlos Costa

PhD Student

About me

I aim to employ, to the best of my ability, my knowledge and soft skills in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics and nanotechnology, acquired during both my Bachelor and Master degrees, in a multidisciplinary approach towards developing novel biomimetic affinity reagents targeting the current pandemic virus, SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, potentially facilitating diagnosis and vaccine production, whilst also gaining experience in bioengineering and bioseparations.

Iana Lychko

PhD student

About me

Iana Lychko's main research interests are in the fields of Protein Engineering and Biomaterials. Currently, she is developing a new class of protein-based biomaterials for gas-sensing to control fish freshness. This work is within the Sea2See project which aims to explore the potential of cephalopode specific proteins called reflectins and their derivatives to form stimuli-responsive biomaterial.
