Zoom webinar recording


Dr. Barros will discuss her career path from Biophysics degree to her current position as a Research Investigator at Bristol-Myers Squibb. She will be sharing her experience of transitioning from academic research to working in an industry setting as well as the work performed at the Drug Product Development department at BMS.

Dr. Barros is a biophysicist with expertise in biomolecular interactions working in drug product development. She received her PhD in Physics from Carnegie Melon University where she studied lipid-protein interactions and structure of proteins at lipid membranes. During her graduating studies she became a Guest Researcher at NIST Center for Neutron Research where she conducted and helped facility users to perform neutron scattering experiments. After her PhD, she joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Center as a postdoc to lead and develop the biophysics research for studying the mechanisms of action of proteins that have implication in both cancer and Alzheimer disease. Currently, she works for Bristol-Myers Squibb, as a Research Investigator, where she is primarily responsible for the technical advancement of biologic drug candidates in support of formulation and process optimization throughout all stages of clinical and commercial drug product development.
