Judite Novais Barbosa

Judite Novais Barbosa is Assistant Professor at ICBAS - Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas de Abel Salazar of the University of Porto and Researcher at INEB. Her research interests are biological responses to biomaterials; inflammation; in vivo studies; macrophages and macrophage polarization. She is currently focused on the development of immunomodulatory biomaterials that are able to promote macrophage polarization to an M2 anti-inflammatory, pro-tissue healing phenotype as a strategy to mitigate the adverse effects of biomaterial induced inflammation for regenerative medicine applications.
