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 new strategy reported by the Bio-NMR group is particular relevant for the development of anticancer vaccines
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
Discovery of the AOX enzyme 3D structure by X-ray crystallography is crucial as a guide for drug design

Isabel Sá Nogueira, integrated member of UCIBIO at Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia (FCT-NOVA), has been elected president of the Portuguese Society of Genetics for a period of three years (2015-2018).
The project W|inove - it’s a grape idea, developed by FARMA|inove, and Luís Magalhães and Marcela Segundo, researchers from UCIBIO at FF-UP, was selected the winner of the Acredita Portugal Competition - category New Ideas. W|inove presents an innovative method, which is more sustainable to perform the wine analysis by the wine makers.
A study published last monday at Scientific Reports: Nature Publishing Group concludes that office paper can be used as a sensor for electrochemically active bacteria detection.
Maria João Ramos, head of the Theoretical and Computational Biochemistry Research Lab, and Filipa Marcelo, researcher at the Bio-NMR Spectroscopy Research Lab, have been nominated National Delegates of the Action Management Committee.
