PhD Student


Inês Rodrigues Lopes graduated in Biochemistry at the University of Coimbra in 2014 and obtained her MSc degree in Biochemistry in 2016 at the University of Porto. Currently, she is a PhD student of the PhD Programme in Experimental Biology and Biomedicine (PDBEB), at the Center for Innovative Biomedicine and Biotechnology (CIBB/CNC), University of Coimbra. Inês works in the areas of Microbiology and Cell Biology. Her studies focus on the virulence mechanisms and molecular processes operating in hosts infected with bacterial pathogens with high impact in human health, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Shigella flexneri, Salmonella Typhimurium, Escherichia coli and Group B Streptococcus. She has published 4 articles in peer-reviewed journals, mainly in the area of infectious diseases. Her PhD project intends to identify host cell factors regulating Staphylococcus aureus invasion and intracellular replication to define novel therapeutic approaches.
