Inês Maria Melo Vaz Pinto Ribeiro

Inês Pinto Ribeiro graduated in Biomedical Laboratory Sciences (Análises Clínicas e Saúde Pública) in Jully 2011, at Escola Superior de Saúde do Porto of Polytechnic Institute of Porto. In April of 2015, she obtained her Master’s degree in Molecular Medicine and Oncology at Faculty of Medicine of University of Porto. In June of 2020, Ines concluded her PhD in Biomedicine at Faculty of Medicine of University of Porto, which focused on the evaluation of Helicobacter pylori genotypes and gastric microbiota markers to identify individuals at high risk of gastric carcinoma. During the last eight years, Ines integrated a research team in Ipatimup/i3S, where she worked in different projects about host-pathogen interactions in the gastric carcinoma field. Currently, Ines is a researcher in the HandCare project at Amyris BioProducts Portugal. She is responsible for the antimicrobial activity of hand disinfectants (alcohol-based), as well as, for the evaluation of the impact of those in the skin microbiota composition.
