Carlos Jesus holds a BSc in Biomedical Laboratory Sciences (Coimbra Health School - 2016) and an MSc in Biomedical Research (Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra - 2018). Currently, he is enrolled in the Doctoral Programme in Health Sciences from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra and in the EIT Health Ageing PhD School. Carlos has more than 5 years experience in the extracellular vesicles (EV) field including isolation from different sources, purification and characterization by several methods, EV modification/labeling and bioactivity assays using EV. He is performing his lab work in Doctor Lino Ferreira's Group (Biomaterials and Stem Cell-Based Therapeutics Laboratory) in a partnership with the Imperial College London. In 2014, he participated in an ERASMUS+ Mobility Programme to develop part of his BSc dissertation at the Sahlgrenska Academy (University of Gothenburg, Sweden) which resulted in one scientific article publication as first author and several oral/poster communications in scientific meetings. Carlos has participated in several entrepreneurship training programs and competitions, including EIT Health courses. He has been awarded the 1st prize in the National contest "Elevator Pitch - Bolsa de Empreendedorismo", the StartUp Voucher grant from IAPMEI, winner of the Innocore Challenge, and an honorable mention from the Ideas and Business Plan Contest ArriscaC 2016. He sees his future in an interface between industry and health R&D.
