Ana Paula Pêgo

Ana Paula Pêgo is the Coordinator of the nBTT - nanoBiomaterials for Targeted Therapies Group and leader of the nanoBiomaterials for Neurosciences team. By using nanomedicine strategies her team aims at providing in situ and in a targeted manner the required signals to promote nervous tissue regeneration. The research on new biomaterials for application in neurosciences includes the development of new polymers for the design of alternative vectors to viruses for efficient nucleic acid delivery and preparation of nerve grafts for spinal cord injury treatment.
