Artur M. Pinto graduated in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Advanced Institute of Health Sciences (PT), obtaining his PhD (cum laude) in Biomedical Engineering from Faculty of Engineering (FEUP), University of Porto (PT). His PhD work was carried out at Laboratory for Process Engineering, Environment, Biotechnology and Energy (LEPABE) - FEUP, INEB-i3S, and University of Washington - Bioengineering Department - Buddy Ratner's Lab (US). The research focus was on production and characterization of graphene-based materials and their polymer composites, and study of the interaction between biomaterials and biological components. After his graduation, Artur has been appointed as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Materials and Interface Chemistry Lab (SMG) - Eindhoven University of Technology (NL), where he developed research work on graphene-based materials for electronic and biomedical applications, namely 3D printing of polymeric implants. Also, he was a teaching assistant at the Chemical Engineering and Chemistry Department (Nanotechnology course). Following his Post-doc, Artur has been appointed as Researcher at INEB-i3S, being Principal Investigator of the Foundation for Science and Technology R&D project "NovaDerma", whose work plan comprises the development of innovative biomaterials/drugs conjugates to be integrated in pharmaceutical formulations for the treatment of skin diseases, as basal cell carcinoma, psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis. Meanwhile, he has been awarded a long-term Researcher position at LEPABE-FEUP, on the competitive national call CEEC-IND, carrying out his research activities on both institutions. Artur has been supervising more than 20 Post-docs, PhD, MSc students and research fellows working on the projects he has been involved in. His work has been cited more than 1000 times and has an h and i10 index of 11, it has been presented in over 60 international conferences, including invited talks, and workshops. During his career, Artur has been involved in several international collaborative research projects, working directly with partners from institutions in countries such as the US, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Finland. Artur has been invited for chairing and refereeing in prestigious conferences on his field of work, and recently organized a Symposium on Advanced Materials at the MRS 2020 Fall Meeting, together with colleagues from the US. Also, he has received the Julia Polak European Research Award in recognition of the work developed on the field, by the European Society for Biomaterials. Recently, he has received the Publons Top Reviewer award, for his track of over 100 reviews and edits performed. Also, he has been performing the evaluation of international research projects in his field of work. Finally, he has co-written a chapter on "Carbon Biomaterials" for the just-released 4th edition of the world-renowned book Biomaterials Science: An Introduction to Materials in Medicine.
