Lisete is a Researcher at University of Aveiro (UA, Department of Chemistry), Portugal, since April 2019. She is also an Honorary Research Associate in the Glycosciences Laboratory at Imperial College London (ICL). Lisete obtained her BSc degree in Chemistry in 2007 at FCUP (Portugal), and completed her MSc in Chemistry with food specialisation in 2008, at the same University. Her PhD degree in Biochemistry was obtained in 2014 at UA, in collaboration with the GlycoLab: Functional Glycobiology at FCT-NOVA and the Glycosciences Laboratory at ICL. PhD IN BIOCHEMISTRY: Lisete focused on the structural analyses of lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) from clinical isolates of H. pylori by GC-MS and ESI-MSn, and on the development of a bacterial LPS microarray for interaction studies with glycan-binding proteins and human sera. POST-DOCTORAL STUDIES IN GLYCOBIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY: Her knowledge on the structural (bio)chemistry of complex carbohydrates, combined with her passion for the glycobiology field and expertise on glycan microarrays, have led her to a Research Associate position in the pioneer glycan microarray team (Glycosciences Laboratory) at ICL, in March 2015; and in November 2015, she was named Deputy Microarray Project Leader with responsibility for running, maintaining and troubleshooting the group's microarray equipment and performing glycan array analyses of proteins, received from national and international collaborators. In parallel, Lisete carried out investigations of different liposomal formulations for lipid-linked glycan probes in neoglycolipid (NGL)-based microarrays with respect to the binding signals they elicit in microarray analyses. These studies led to the construction of a new version of a broad-spectrum microarray of ~ 900 natural or synthetic lipid-linked sequence-defined glycan probes (one of the two largest glycan libraries in the world) for the Wellcome-Trust supported Carbohydrate Microarray Facility, suitable for screening analyses of a variety of carbohydrate recognition systems of biological and medical impact and able to serve the scientific community as international resources. During 2015-2019, Lisete actively contributed and provided leadership support to biotechnology and biomedicine R&D projects (translational research); collaborated with 50+ national and international academic and industrial teams that have resulted in > £30k of revenue for facility services. As an Honorary Research Associate in the Glycosciences Laboratory, Lisete is currently providing consultancy advice to the group regarding microarray equipment and training to the new staff members, assisting with microarray experiments, data analysis and preparation of manuscripts. Back to Portugal in 2019, Lisete has been focused on the development of galactomannan-based microparticles, obtained from different natural sources, for pulmonary drug delivery. The structural variability of the different galactomannans is being evaluated using conventional analytical tools and has been complemented with interaction studies with glycan-binding proteins of various recognition systems using glycan microarrays. RESEARCH INTERESTS: 1) glycan structural features and bioactivity relationship; 2) designer and construction of microarrays of natural and/or synthetic glycans; 3) to use glycan microarrays for new ligands discovery and to explore glycan-protein interactions in various biological systems, such as pathogen- and microbiota-host interactions that trigger diseases; 4) development of natural glycan-based products and glycan-based microparticles for drug delivery.
