Carry out a study of the protein recovery extracted from urine samples, using a simple and robust methodology of filtration based on polymer membranes. This stage of the thesis was developed during my mission in the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon, Portugal, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. José Luis Capelo Martinez.
