Dr. Teodora Miclăuş

Teodora joined CBNI in October 2017, on a GOIPD Fellowship. Her main work at the Centre revolves around developing advanced mapping tools for the biomolecular coronas on a variety of nanomaterials.

Teodora obtained a BSc degree in chemistry from the University of Bucharest (Romania) in 2009, with a thesis on the synthesis of a compound used in perfumery. She then went on to do a MSc in the science of cultural heritage at the Physics Department of the same University, focusing on nanomaterials for stone conservation. During the same time (2009-2011), she was an assistant in the Colloids and Nanomaterials Laboratory of the Chemistry Department, where she worked on several nanomedicine-related topics.

In early 2015, Teodora obtained a PhD in Nanoscience from the University of Aarhus (Denmark), after 3 years studying “Surface Phenomena at Silver Nanoparticles in the Context of Toxicology” in Duncan Sutherland’s NanoBiointerfaces Group (iNANO, Aarhus). She remained in the same group as a postdoc for another year, developing nanostructured catheters for the treatment of chronic kidney disease.

In 2016-2017, Teodora worked as a research fellow at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL, Braga, Portugal), where she collaborated with industry and regulatory bodies in the study of nanomaterials in wastewater treatment systems and in facilitating the use of nanomaterials by SMEs in the plastic industry.
