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).
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.
Elisabete Oliveira, researcher at UCIBIO at FCT NOVA, was awarded with the Medal of Honor L'Oreal Portugal for Women in Science 2015.
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
