Iva Pashkuleva obtained PhD in Organic Synthesis from University of Sofia, Bulgaria in 2000 and immediately was contracted by the same University as an Assistant Professor. In 2002, she moved to University of Minho, Portugal where started research activities in the area of Biomaterials as a post-doc fellow under the scope of the European project ALGISORB. One year later, she was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). During her PostDoc, she specialised in surface characterisation and modification of biomaterials. In 2008, she received Career Starting Grant under the Portuguese National Program Compromisso com a Ciência. During this period, Dr Pashkuleva kept her research focus on surface modification of biomaterials (with emphasis on starch and chitosan) as a way to enhance their biocompatibility. She was principal investigator (PI) of two European projects that enabled her to build own network of international collaborations both in academy and industry. In 2013, she was awarded a Development Career Grant under the Portuguese Program Investigador FCT. During this last period, I Pashkuleva established a new research line focussed on biofunctional glycans and built a small research team, whose core is currently composed by 1 Research associate, 2 PostDocs and 6 PhD students, financially supported by different institutions (EU, FCT, the Brazilian CAPEAS). She also takes part of the ERASMUS programme (supervisor of undergrad students), the FCT PhD programme in Tissue engineering, regenerative medicine (TERM) and stem cells (coordinator of the biomaterials module) as well as of the UMinho online course in TERM. Pashkuleva and her team are working on the elucidation of glycan role in cellular communication and the possibility to explore glycans in design and synthesis of functional biomaterials. They have developed new analytical methods and platforms for characterization of challenging to measure glycan-protein and glycan-cell interactions. Advancements in glycan-based delivery systems were achieved by development of new designs and concepts. The use of glycans in cancer therapies was also explored: for the first-time glycan amphiphiles were used as substrates in selective biocatalytic approach. Extracellular supramolecular mimics were generated by self-assembly of glycans and proteins or their functional simpler analogues carbohydrates and peptides. As PI and Co-PI she successfully obtained funding from FCT and EC in a total amount of 4.67M€ while she has participated in the proposal preparation and research team of National granted Projects corresponding to a total budget of about 0.87M€ and EC projects corresponding to a total budget of over 3.52M€. Her background and experience gained during the years has been recognised by different evaluation agencies and peers. She has been acting as a member of different MSc and PhD examination panels and as External Evaluator of Project proposals for EU (H2020, ERA-NET) and different national foundations (Czech Science Foundation, Swiss National Science Foundation, EMPA co-fund programme, University of Milano - Bicocca "Innovation Project Grant" program). During the last years she has been acting as a referee for peer-reviewed journals form Elsevier, Wiley, Taylor & Francis, RSC, ACS. Since 2018, she is an Academic editor for PlosOne and Molecules (MDPI). I Pashkuleva is an elected member of the General and Scientific Councils of the Research Institute of Biomaterials, Biodegradables and Biomimetics (I3Bs) and the Quality Assurance team of the same Institute.
