Fernanda Ramos-Gomes is a post-doctoral research fellow. From 2011-2015 she was a member of the EU funded large collaborative project Namdiatream, where she worked on the development of a novel toolkit for multi-modal detection of biomarkers of common cancer types and metastases based on quantum-dots. Following this, she took part in two BMBF projects, DiaTumor and ELICIT, which explored the development of new photonic technologies to verify the interactions between tumor cells and ECM, and the demonstration of immune cell infiltration in tumour tissue. With an excellent background in the preparation of biological samples and microscopy techniques, Fernanda’s expertise is important for the adaptation of complex tissues to different microscopy imaging conditions. Using high-resolution, multiphoton and light-sheet microscopy, her focus lies in imaging deep intra-tumour probe-derived and endogenous nonlinear signals, monitoring drug release in tumour microenvironment and tracking of nanoparticle-labeled cells.
