My research is currently focused in biobanks and human bio-objects in health contexts. The aim is to understand how the bio-objectification process of human biological samples is contributing to produce and reproduce biomedicalised notions of health, based in individual bodies but mostly outside of the human body. Also it aims to frame the reality of biobanks in the context of the Portuguese healthcare system and scientific context.
