Miguel Xavier

Postgraduate research student

Miguel Xavier is an MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Porto. His thesis focused on the development of a cell-based in vitro model to mimic the gastric mucosa. In 2013 he became a researcher at INEB where he used nanomedicine strategies based on dendrimers to promote nervous tissue regeneration. In September 2014, he moved to Southampton to start his PhD working with microfluidic systems for human skeletal stem cell sorting to promote the regeneration of cartilage and bone.
