Larissa Fernanda Ferreira


Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia e Inovações (Brasil). Centro Nacional de Pesquisa em Energia e Materiais (CNPEM)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Degree in Chemistry from the Federal University of São Carlos. Master degree in Biotechnology from the Federal University of ABC with a sandwich period at Université Paris Diderot (CNRS-France). PhD in Chemistry at the State University of Campinas. All research development was carried out in laboratories located at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) with a FAPESP grant. During his training, she worked on the development of the synthesis and functionalization of silica nanoparticles applied to the treatment of diseases (nanomedicine). In addition to investigating how the interaction of silica nanoparticles with different proteins, phospholipids, and carbohydrates occurred. During the doctorate, a new methodology for the characterization of nanoparticles was developed. Performed from in-situ and real-time monitoring of the synthesis of silica nanoparticles for the determination of size/concentration by means of an electronic tongue-type impedimetric millifluidic sensor.During graduate school, she acquired experience in characterization techniques such as: XPS, DLS, TGA, GC/MS, HPLC, FT-IR, NMR, SAXS, UV-Vis, electronic microscopy, centrifugation, lyophilization, potentiostats, spectroscopy electrochemical impedance, electrophoresis, pH meter, among others. Currently, she is working as a postdoctoral researcher at Laboratório Farmacêutico Aché in the development of an electrochemical methodology to evaluate the palatability of drugs, under the supervision of PhD. Margarete Moreno Araujo. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
