BioMark sensor Research, University of Coimbra
Walter Brito obtained the Ph.D. degree at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil, in related research to the characterization of electroluminescent materials applied to OLED devices through spectroscopic techniques employing Synchrotron radiation. The postdoctoral studies were conducted in related research to the functionalization of bioelectronic sensors. Since 2013, he has an Academic Position at the Federal University of Amazonas (UFAM). He is also the leader of the Research Group on Bioelectronics, Photovoltaic Devices and Materials Chemistry, and coordinator of the Bioelectronics Laboratory - LABEL of the Analytical Center - UFAM. The aim of his research projects is to develop new materials for third-generation solar cells, biomaterials with medical applications, and electrochemical immunosensors.
The Professor is currently advising one postdoctoral fellow, six doctoral students, two master students, and four scientific initiation scholarship holders.
