Dr Ana Martins obtained her B.S. degree in Applied Biology and a M.Sc on Processing and Characterization of Materials at the University of Minho. In 2009 she completed her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering regarding the development and characterization of novel natural-origin scaffolds using flow perfusion conditions for bone tissue engineering. During her Ph.D., she received a scholarship for her doctoral research studies from the European Network of Excellence, EXPERTISSUES, which enabled her to perform her studies at the 3B's Research Group, University of Minho, Portugal and at Rice University, Houston, USA with Professors Rui L. Reis and Antonios Mikos, respectively. In June of 2010 she earned a Postdoctoral grant from Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology to develop her research project regarding the generation of iPS cells using non-viral vectors and cardiomyocytes differentiation at University of Minho and Columbia University at the lab of Prof. Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic. Her research interests include new electroconductive biomaterials for tissue engineering and disease modeling, cell culture and differentiation of iPSCs, and rare diseases.
