Nuno Filipe Azevedo graduated in Biological Engineering in 2001 at the University of Minho (UMinho), Portugal and then finished a sandwich PhD on Chemical and Microbial Technology in 2005 at the UMinho and the University of Southampton, UK. After holding a Post-doctoral position at the same two institutions for 4 years, he started a Faculty Research Fellow position at the Laboratory for Process Engineering, Environment, Biotechnology and Energy (LEPABE) at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). He is currently an Assistant Professor at FEUP. During his research career he has authored or co-authored more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, submitted 7 patents and co-edited two books. He has been invited to more than 30 oral presentations in national and international conferences and is regularly part of the scientific advisory committee of several international conferences. Nuno Azevedo is currently supervising or co-supervising several PhD students and postdoctoral researchers and teaching undergrad students of the Bioengineering, Chemical and Environmental Engineering Courses at FEUP. Nuno Azevedo main research interests are to explore the potential of nucleic acid mimics for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of infectious agents, as well as multispecies biofilms. He is currently leading the EU-funded project DelNAM, a project aims to develop a novel therapeutic approach to solve bacterial resistance to antibiotics through the delivery of antibacterial nucleic acid mimics into bacterial biofilms and cells within the human body. He is also participating as team leader in other European projects, such as PRINT-AID-European training network for development of personalized anti-infective medical devices combining printing technologies and antimicrobial functionality", and is the PI/co-PI of several other national projects in these same areas. He was also a co-founder of the biotech company Biomode SA, that was granted >1.5M€ in investment funds.
