Host: José Moura, LAQV-REQUIMTE at FCT NOVA
Maria Paula Marques (October 1960, Portugal) received her MSc in Physical-Chemistry (1987), her PhD in Biochemistry (1995) and her habillitation in Biosciences (2018) from the University of Coimbra (Portugal). M.P.M. Marques is currently an assistant professor at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Coimbra, assistant-coordinator of the R&D Group “Molecular Physical-Chemistry” and head of the “Chemoprevention, -Therapy & -Toxicology” laboratory. M.P.M. Marques has authored 150 scientific papers, 8 book chapters and co-edited 3 books.
She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a member of the Clinical Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy for Medical Diagnosis (CLIRSPEC), an associate editor of RSC Advances and a member of the editorial boards of Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery and Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging.
Her research is centred on the development of metal-based antitumour agents and on the early diagnosis of cancer using vibrational spectroscopy, including neutron techniques and synchrotron-based methods.
