Rita C Acúrcio is currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Research Institute for Medicines (iMedULisboa), integrated in the Faculty of Pharmacy - University of Lisboa. Rita had recently an FCT-funded project as principal investigator (SM-UnLOCK, 50K€) stared in 2022. She is also responsible for a LaCaixa-funded project (CoVax, CF01-00014, 300K€) on the COVID nanomedicine field, at BioNanoSciences - Drug Delivery & Immunoengineering Group. Rita developed her PhD studies in the discovery and development of new small-molecule immune system modulators for cancer treatment. Previously, she developed other projects during her Master Thesis in Organic Chemistry at the University of Aveiro, which resulted in a total of 5 publications in international peer-reviewed journals (two as 1st author). Rita started her PhD in 2016 at Dr. Guedes and Dr. Florindo labs at iMedULisboa (Lisboa, Portugal), which her expertise allowed the development of unique immunomodulatory small molecules to reprogram tumor microenvironment. This technology inspired the FCT-funded project (SM-UnLOCK, 50K€), 3 oral and 10 poster presentations, 3 publications, all as 1st author, 1 Provisional Patent Application (No. 63/150,643), and 1MSc project co-supervised by Rita. In 2020, she started a Post-Doctoral position of a LaCaixa-funded international consortium (NanoPanther, LCF/PR/HR19/52160021, 1M€) on the pancreatic cancer nanomedicine field, involving iMedULisboa (Lisboa, Portugal), Prince Felipe Research Center (CIPF) (Valencia, Spain) and Tel Aviv University (Tel Aviv, Israel). As part of NanoPanther, she joined the Lab of Prof. Ronit Satchi-Fainaro, one of the most renowned groups in Cancer Research and Nanomedicine, at Tel Aviv University (Israel). Overall, Rita interacted with more than 50 authors (+5 nationalities), publishing in total 14 articles and 2 conference proceedings with a cumulative impact factor of 113 and a total of 287 citations. The publication list includes top specialty journals, as Nat. Nanotech., J Med Chem or Adv Drug Deliv Rev. She was also awarded the cover image of the Nat. Nanotech. in August 2020. Rita presented her work at several national/international meetings (7 oral communications and 15 posters). She was supported with 4 travel grants from renowned scientific societies to participate in highly recognized international meetings, including European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) and European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC). Also, she was awarded a travel grant by European Commission sponsored COST Mission (CA15135) to enroll in a training school at Fraunhofer-IME, in Hamburg. Rita had been part of the team of 4 FCT-funded projects, 2 international consortiums, and 1 pharmaceutical industry-sponsored project (Polymer Therapeutic Systems (PTS), Valencia, Spain). She is also actively mentoring and/or supervising 2 PhD, 4 MSc students, and 1 Undergraduate student (Research training within Project curricular unit at FFUL).
