UCIBIO in the news

On March 8th 2016, International Women's Day, the national agency Ciência Viva honoured 103 scientist women in Portugal in the book Mulheres na Ciência. It is a tribute to the scientists’ women in Portugal, whose contribution has been a key to the progress of national science and technology. We are very proud to have 4 scientists from UCIBIO being honoured:
Scientists at UCIBIO, FCT, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa have demonstrated for the first time the potential use of smart nanomaterials for the effective modulation of angiogenesis in vivo.
A research team led by José Paulo Sampaio at Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (FCT-NOVA), identified for the first time the wild population that gave rise to the domesticated wine yeasts.
A study led by Filipa Marcelo, post-doc researcher at the Bio-NMR group led by Eurico Cabrita at UCIBIO in Lisbon, reports, for the first time, a strategy to elucidate the key structural elements required to design an efficient anticancer vaccin
