Violeta is a Ph.D. student in the Mechanical Engineering at University of Minho. Her work is focused on the development and optimization of innovative nanoparticles and a preclinical organ-on-a-chip platform for nanomedicine. During her time at Harvard Medical School (Shin’s Lab), Violeta’s research will be focused on the development of a physiologically mimicking brain bioreactor that recreates the miniaturized human brain platform, known as brain-on-a-chip, by combining the experimental and computational components.
