Andreia Jorge is research doctorate at the University of Coimbra. She obtained her PhD in macromolecular chemistry in 2013 from the University of Coimbra. During her PhD, she also worked at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Barcelona, and the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, University of Ludwig–Maximilians, Germany. She then moved to a postdoctoral fellow position in a joint project with the Coimbra Chemistry Centre and the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia, Spain, where she conducted research on the chemical modification of oligonucleotides with therapeutic applications, using both experimental and computational approaches. Her current research activities are in the fields of chemical-modified therapeutic oligonucleotides (antisense and siRNA) for gene silencing, antiproliferative oligonucleotides, sequence‐specific protein–DNA interactions, lipid- and polymer-based drug delivery systems and programmable self-assembling DNA nanostructures.
