Marta V. Mendes

Marta V. Mendes is a research team leader at the Bioengineering and Synthetic Microbiology group (IBMC-i3S) and invited assistant Professor at ICBAS (UP). Her current research is focused on the implementation of knowledge-based strategies for the development and optimization of bacterial biotechnological processes. The research lines currently underway cover both basic and applied research topics. The knowledge gathered from the study of molecular regulatory mechanisms that stand in the interface of bacterial physiological processes is used for the design of synthetic biology tools to develop microbial factories for the production of bioactive natural products.
