Ângela was my first PhD student and graduated in 16th December 2013. She is now a post-doctoral fellow in a joint project between Minho University and the NIAID/NIH (Bethesda, USA), co-supervised by Michael Otto.
Ângela’s latest paper…
“Staphylococcus epidermidis biofilm-released cells induce a prompt and more marked in vivo inflammatory-type response than planktonic or biofilm cells”, provides insights into the understanding of the role of biofilm-released cells in S. epidermidis biofilm-related infections and pathogenesis, and also help explaining the relapsing character of these infections.
