Marcelina Cardoso Dos Santos
Marcelina Cardoso Dos Santos is postdoctoral researcher in the NanoBioPhotonics group (www.nanofret.com) at the Institute for Integrative Biology of the Cell (I2BC) in Orsay, France.
She holds a Master degree in Cell Biology and Physiopathology (2009) from Université Victor Segalen Bordeaux II and a Ph.D. in Optics and Nanotechnologies (2015) from Université de Technologie de Troyes. Her fields of research are optics development, surface functionalization, and live cell imaging. Her postdoctoral research focusses on the development of time-gating microscopy dedicated to multiplexed Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) biosensing. This and other FRET imaging techniques are mainly used to characterize and apply nanocomplexes (Terbium-Quantum Dots) or nanoparticles (Terbium, Europium) in cell or tissues and to analyze plasmon response functions of nanostructures.
