Dr. Manso received her D.D.S. degree at the University of Londrina, Brazil, Master of Science in Restorative Dentistry at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and PhD in Dental Biomaterials at the University of São Paulo, Brazil. Additionally, she holds two specialty degrees, in Endodontics and Restorative Dentistry along with 28 years of private practice experience. 
She taught Dental Biomaterials and Restorative Dentistry in Specialty Programs in Brazil. She was Manager for Clinical Research at Bisco, Inc, USA; and a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry, University of Florida, College of Dentistry, USA. Dr. Manso joined UBC Faculty of Dentistry as Clinical Assistant Professor in 2011 in the Division of Dental Biomaterials. Currently, she is Associate Professor and Chair, Division of Restorative Dentistry, Department of Oral Health Sciences at the University of British Columbia. 
Dr. Manso has lectured both nationally and internationally in continuing education programs and universities. She has authored and co-authored several scientific articles in peer-review journals as well as book chapters. She serves as reviewer in multiple peer-reviewed journals, including Journal of Dental Research, Dental Materials, Operative Dentistry, Journal of Biomedical Materials Research, among others. Some of her major research interests are related to the mechanisms involved in the degradation of resin-dentin interfaces for direct and indirect dental restorations, adhesive systems, resin cements and resin composites. Currently, her research program is focused on the development of resin-based dental materials with antimicrobial properties.
