Isabel Vasconcelos

Professor(a) Associado(a)

Doutorada (1991) e mestre (1987) em Biotecnologia pelo Institut National des Sciences Apliquées de Toulouse e licenciada (1984) em Engenharia Química pela Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto. É Professora Associada da Escola Superior de Biotecnologia da Universidade Católica Portuguesa (ESB-UCP) e atualmente diretora desta Escola. Integra a direção da ESB-UCP desde 1998 como diretora adjunta para a Divisão Académica; anteriormente foi diretora da Licenciatura em Microbiologia e coordenadora dos Estudos Pós-Graduados da ESB-UCP.

Leciona disciplinas nas áreas dos bioprocessos e da microbiologia industrial. Os seus interesses de investigação focam-se na fisiologia microbiana e no desenvolvimento de processos biológicos, nomeadamente no que respeita ao controlo dos fluxos metabólicos de carbono e energia, às modificações dos perfis de fermentação dos microrganismos e à síntese de moléculas com interesse industrial.
