Ana Paula Francisco received her degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 1989. After graduation she moved to Biochemistry I group at LNETI-DTIC as Research fellow where she worked on the biological evaluation of liposomal formulations and the establishement of in vivo infectious and arthritis models. In 1991 she was contracted as Trainee assitant at Faculty of Pharmacy- University of Lisbon. In 2005 she obtained her PhD in triazene chemistry and in the development of mutual prodrugs for melanoma chemotherapy. During these years her research interests have been devoted to the study of prodrug chemistry, drug development, and study of physico-chemical and metabolic properties of drugs and prodrugs. More recently Ana Paula's research interests are the design and synthesis of new hybrid compounds with anticancer activity and the sudy of chemical and biological stability of drugs, prodrugs and other compounds with terapeutic utility . Other research interests are related with other collaborative and translational projects dedicated to the development or usage of diverse delivery systems that can be associated with active molecules and improve their pharmacological profile.
