Márcia Alexandra Dias Braz is doing her PhD in Biology at the University of Aveiro working on phage therapy, an alternative therapy to antibiotics. Márcia Braz has a vast knowledge in Microbiology and in Medical and Health Sciences. In 2017, she completed her Degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Beira Interior with the final classification of 16/20, being recognized with a merit certificate. In 2019, she completed her Master's degree in Microbiology at the University of Aveiro, under guidance of Professor Adelaide Almeida (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8422- 8664) and Doctor Ana Gomes (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3201-0081) with the final classification of 18/20. Her thesis entitled "Photoinactivation of MRSA on skin: effect of potassium iodide and iodopovidone as potentiators of a porphyrinic formulation", merits the classification of 19/20. During the Master's degree period she participated in several activities that contributed to the enrichment of her knowledge in the Microbiology area, including attending the Advanced Course on "Antibiotic Alternatives Against Pathogenic Bacteria", acquiring knowledge in Phage Therapy and in Antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy. Márcia Braz is the author of one original article in the international peer-reviewed journal Photodiagnosis and Photodynamic Therapy entitled "Photodynamic inactivation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus on skin using a porphyrinic formulation (DOI: 10.1016/j.pdpdt.2020.101754)", two poster communications in international (17th International Congress on Photobiology / 18th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology - ESP-IUPB World Congress - Barcelona, Spain) and national (One Health Day workshop - Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies (CESAM) - University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal) meetings and is a co-author of one oral communication presented at an international meeting (17th International Congress on Photobiology / 18th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology, ESP-IUPB World Congress). For this international meeting, Márcia Braz was awarded with a scholarship, by the European Society for Photobiology.
