Tatiana Patrício

Short Bio

Tatiana Patrício is researcher and IDI project manager in the company ATT – ADVANCED TOOL TECHNOLOGY (Marinha Grande, Portugal).


She has a first degree in Biomechanics and the Master degree in Engineering Design and Product Development, both obtained in the School of Technology and Management of the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (IPL). From 2009 to 2014, she carried out research activities in the Research Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development (CDRSP-IPL), Leiria, Portugal, with the main focus on scaffolds fabrication by additive manufacturing; development of research projects with industries; writing project’s applications and she also was responsible of the characterisation materials laboratory.    


In February 2014, she received a Marie Curie Research Fellowship denominated as “Development of superparamagnetic scaffolds for bone Tissue Engineering”, of the European Project Bio inspired Bone Regeneration, G.A. Nº 607051. Concerning to that research fellowship, the best-in-class strategies to obtain bio-inspired superparamagnetic hybrid microspheres for bone tissue engineering were investigated in the Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics, (Faenza, Italy).


In May 2017, she was awarded the PhD degree in Biomedical Sciences and she has successfully accomplished all the requirements for the label “Doctor Europaeus” as stated in the UNIBO Internal regulation (Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna). During the PhD, Tatiana Patrício had the opportunity to collaborate with multi-disciplinary partners (industrial and academic) with high reputation on bone regeneration approaches, and she developed research work in Fujifilm Europe B.V. (Tilburg, Netherlands), in Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute (Bologna, Italy) and in Erasmus Medical Center (Rotterdam, Netherlands).


Tatiana Patrício has been participated in several national and European projects funded by Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, Portuguese National Innovation Agency, FP7, H2020, among others. Moreover, she has been attended to numerous international conferences, as oral speaker, and she is author or co-author of several scientific papers, chapters and co-author of 1 PPP and 1 MUT. In the beginning of 2018, she became a PhD Integrated Researcher of the CDRSP-IPLeiria. Additionally, her main interest areas are synthesis and characterisation of biomaterials, magnetic biomaterials, tissue engineering, biomedical devices for bone tissue regeneration, additive biomanufacturing, IDI projects and industry 4.0.
