Laura Isabel Macieira Cerqueira finished her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minho in 2012. Her expertise includes exploiting the technological advantages of Nucleic Acid Mimics Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (NAM-FISH) for the pathogens detection in food safety, clinical and environmental areas. After holding a Post-doctoral position at LEPABE, Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), for 3 years, she had her professional activity at Biomode (co-founder) as a team leader and COO, where the main activities focused at R&D, developing PNA-FISH methods for the detection of pathogens in clinical and food safety areas; quality certification; and administrative operations. She's been fully dedicated to science within two distinct but complimentary sides: fundamental research and technology transfer. Her purpose was the creation of value to society applying the knowledge gathered through research. Currently, she holds a junior Researcher Position at LEPABE and she is the PI of the FCT project POCI-01-0145-FEDER-029961 (COLOR-ISH) (https://www.fish-feup.pt/projects/color-ish) which aims to develop a colorimetric method exploiting a modified NAM-FISH method, using biotinylated PNA probes for the particular detection of Legionella spp.. She was also the Assistant Director of a Class II laboratory at LEPABE (2020-2021). As a result of her scientific activities, she is the author / co-author of 20 papers in international peer-reviewed journals and 1 book chapter. She has a total of 850 citations and an h-index of 14 (Google Scholar, January , 2022). She is the inventor / co-inventor of 4 patents and she also obtained 3 International Biomode kits quality certificates in the food safety area and a CE mark for a clinical product. During her career, she has been participating as a researcher and as coordinator in several types of projects, not only at the Universities (FCT, H2020, Co-Promoção) but also at the company (P2020, H2020). In addition, she was also involved in the presentation of a Business Plan to private investors, allowing the fund raising of about 1.9M¿ in Biomode. She is currently supervising or co-supervising several Master students and researchers. She's also engaged on review activities for scientific journals, guest editor at Micromachines (MDPI) for the special issue "Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-Chip Applications for Biosensing" and as an evaluator/rapporteur for EIT Health and European Commission. Laura Cerqueira main research interests are to explore the potential use of NAMs in Fluorescence in situ hybridization for the specific detection of microorganisms and to tackle the critical points that hinder FISH to impose as an alternative of excellence in bacterial detection. In addition, she is also involved in the integration studies of FISH with Microfluidic systems. Her ultimate goal is to develop simple, portable, rapid and customized point-of-care devices providing the industry and control laboratories with reliable analytical tools.

2013 - 2013 The workshop focused on the theoretical part of FISH and its applications with oral presentations and poster sessions and in a practical course, focused on different FISH techniques applied to the detection of bacteria. This one-day course allowed participants to have a hands-on experience on the diverse steps of two well-known hybridization techniques: PNA-FISH (peptide nucleic acid FISH) and CARD-FISH (catalyzed reporter deposition FISH).
