Duarte Miguel de França Teixeira dos Prazeres

Full Professor


Research Activities

Molecular design of DNA therapeutics (e.g. plasmid biopharmaceuticals), Bio-recognition and bio-interfacing (e.g. paper-based biosensors, biomolecular constructs to anchor biomolecules to surfaces), Microbial cell factories (e.g. engineering and use of microbial cells for plasmid and minicircle production).
