Special Session on
Biomedical Optical Imaging and Nanomedicine
 - BONano 2017

27 February - 1 March, 2017 - Porto, Portugal

Within the 5th International Conference on Photonics, Optics and Laser Technology - PHOTOPTICS 2017


Quirina Ferreira
Instituto de Telecomunicações / IST

Brief Bio
Quirina Ferreira received her Ph.D. in Physical Engineering/Nanoengineering from Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2008. She is a researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações of Lisbon where she works with nanofabrication and nanocharacterization techniques. Her work focuses on the preparation and manipulation of materials at molecular scale using scanning tunneling microscopy. She has been developing self-assembled monolayers with applications on biomedical devices and molecular electronics. She has more than 10 years of experience working with nanomaterials and at moment is coordinating research projects in this area.
Joana Ferreira
Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Central/ Faculdade de Ciências Médicas da Universidade Nova de Lisboa

Brief Bio
Joana Ferreira is currently Ophthalmology Assistant at Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Central and researcher at Faculdade de Ciências Médicas of Universidade Nova de Lisboa. She is researching on ocular diabetes as neurodegenerative disease. She was awarded six times by the Portuguese Society of Ophthalmology with several works in different areas, such as: glaucoma, neurophthalmology, refractive surgery and pediatric ophthalmology.


BONano special session will bring together physicians and researchers to discuss all fields of biomedical optics imaging in parallel with nanomedicine applications. The objective is to merge the experience of physicians with the knowledge of researchers in biomedical and nanomedicine.
