Eduarda Correia, MSc in Biochemistry – specialized in Clinical Biochemistry from University of Aveiro, has been a member of our Core Facility since 2015. Nowadays, while managing the Molecular Biology Facility, she provides support and consultancy in this field of knowledge to researchers working at ICVS. As a starting member of the COVID-19 diagnosis team, Eduarda has successfully published a low-cost qPCR method for the accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2. She also participated in the design of a SOP, supervised, and coordinated one of the taskforce’s teams created in ICVS, to assist the National Health System in the detection of this virus.
Currently, Eduarda is interested in the ever-growing Single Cell analysis field, hoping to assist researchers to deconstruct the complexity of biological systems, understanding the differences among cellular populations, its heterogeneity and developmental expression profiles at a single-cell level.
