Prof. Rosane M. Duarte Soares

Principal Investigator

I am an associate professor at the Institute of Chemistry, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil. I have been investigating polymers and biomaterials since 2003, and have participated and developed numerous projects in Brazil, United States, Singapore and Germany. My main research interests are i) development of polymeric hydrogels and the investigation of these disordered systems in reforming complex functions in biomedical applications; ii) development of micro and nanostructure materials by electrospinning; iii) development of biodegradable polymeric films for pharmaceutical and food industry; iv) 3D printing of polymers; and v) polymer biodegradation by fungi from the Amazon region.
