Victor Manuel Balcão is currently Adjunct Professor I - RG of Industrial Pharmaceutical Biotechnology at the University of Sorocaba (UNISO, Sorocaba, Brazil), where he also leads the research group i (bs)^2 - intelligent biosensing and biomolecule stabilization, and holds a BPE fellowship granted by FAPESP (developing a research project with acronym "PsaPhageKill" at the Department of Biology of the University of Aveiro, in Portugal) (process FAPESP BPE refª 2018/05522-9). Previously, he hold a Fellowship of Productivity in Research level 2 from CNPq (process 308208/2017-0). From September 2000 to December 2013 he was Associate Professor at the Faculty of Science and Technology, University Fernando Pessoa (UFP) in Porto, Portugal . He graduated in 1991 in Food Engineering from the School of Biotechnology, Portuguese Catholic University, and obtained his PhD in Biotechnology (Food Science and Engineering) in December 1998 also from the School of Biotechnology of the Portuguese Catholic University. On November 4, 2013 , he obtained the recognition of his PhD degree from the University of São Paulo (Ph.D. in Biochemical-Pharmaceutical Technology, Area of Food Technology, Ph.D. Diploma registered under number 116247, in accordance with the Article 48 of Law 9394/96). Between 1999 and 2001 he held a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Enzyme Engineering in Madrid. In 2002 he was formally elected Member of Sigma XI - The Scientific Research Society (North Carolina, USA). His scientific activity has focused primarily on the (i) structural and functional stabilization of protein entities (bacteriophages, proteins and bioactive peptides) for biopharmaceutical, nutraceutical and food applications, and (ii) development of biomimetic systems. He is also a Research Associate of the Centre for Biological Engineering, University of Minho (Braga, Portugal), and Researcher at the Institute of Chemistry of the State University of Campinas. From August 2012 to July 2013 he was at the University of Sorocaba as a Visiting Researcher with funding from FAPESP . (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
