    Nota Biográfica

    (Informação importada da plataforma CiênciaVitae)
    Duarte de Melo-Diogo (PhD) is an Invited Assistant Professor in the University of Beira Interior (UBI), FCT Junior Researcher at Centro de Investigação em Ciências da Saúde (CICS-UBI), member of Topical Advisory Panel of the journal Pharmaceutics (ISSN 1999-4923; IF = 5.4), member of the CICS-UBI Scientific Council, and was considered a "Worlds TOP 2% Scientist" in 2021, 2022 and 2023. He obtained his BSc (score: 16 out of 20; 2012) and MSc (score: 18 out of 20; 2014) degrees in Biomedical Sciences from UBI. His MSc dissertation (2013-2014) comprised the synthesis of di/tri-block copolymers by ROP for drug/gene delivery. Later, he was awarded with a PhD fellowship from FCT (approx. 53k eur awarded for salary). His PhD thesis (2014-2018) was focused on the synthesis and functionalization of graphene-based nanomaterials for application in cancer photothermal therapy and regenerative medicine, under the supervison of I.J. Correia (CICS-UBI) and R.O. Louro (ITQB-UNL). During his PhD, he was also a member of the PhD Student Committee. In Oct. of 2018, he obtained his PhD degree in Biochemistry from UBI with the highest grade (Excellent). After an international legal proceeding, he was selected to be hired as a PhD Researcher (fixed-term contract at UBI; Jan. 2019 - Jan. 2022). Since 2019, he is coordinating a small team of PhD and MSc students that is exploring the potential of nanomaterials’ photothermal effect in cancer therapy and developing macroscale delivery systems. In 2021, he was ranked 1st in the category of Junior Researcher (< 5 years of PhD conclusion) in the Chemical Sciences Panel of the Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus promoted by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT; ref. 2021.00590.CEECIND; approx. 219k eur awarded for salary). In Jan 2022, he started a new position as Invited Assistant Professor (at UBI) and, in April 2022, he began his FCT Junior Research contract (at CICS-UBI). In 2022, his first project as Principal Investigator (ref. 2022.06320.PTDC; approx. 50k eur) was approved for funding, which then started in January 2023. Currently, he is also co-supervising 2 PhD students, supervising 1 research fellow and 1 MSc student, and is an ad hoc reviewer for 48 indexed journals. So far, Duarte de Melo-Diogo has collaborated with 50+ researchers, leading to 50 peer-reviewed article publications (1st author/shared 1st authorship: 10; corresponding author: 18; last author: 10), that total 2246 citations according to Scopus or 2765 citations according to Google Scholar, resulting in an h-index of 25. From these articles, 8 were published in TOP10% journals and another 33 in Q1 journals (total IF= 319,1; medium IF= 6.5). He has also been granted 2 patents (1 international, 1 national), published 4 book chapters, delivered 11 invited oral presentations, organized 4 scientific conferences and guest-edited 1 Special Issue. He is also author/co-author of 11 oral and 49 poster communications (3 poster awards). He has co-supervised 1 PhD student and 2 research fellows, supervised 2 MSc and co-supervised 7 MSc dissertations as well as 22 BSc projects. Furthermore, he was the main examiner of 6 MSc dissertations, examiner of 2 PhD theses and of 16 BSc projects. He also evaluated research projects for ANI (Portugal) and FONDECYT (Chile) as well as PhD applications for Breakthrough Cancer Research (Ireland) and book redaction proposal for Elsevier. He has also participated in research projects that total 461,044.53 eur. He has also been lecturing practical and theoretical-practical classes to BSc/MSc degrees at UBI on the subjects of Biomaterials, Cellular Biology, Tissue Engineering. His current research interests are (i) synthesis and functionalization of graphene-based nanomaterials for application in cancer therapy, (ii) development of macroscale delivery technologies and (iii) investigation of nanomaterials’ mediated immuno-photothermal approaches.
