New publication available

One of our latest publications is now available!
In this paper, Ana Pina and colleagues discuss the discovery of phosphotyrosine-binding oligopeptides with supramolecular target selectivity through biopanning strategy.

This work was done in collaboration with the Rein Ulijn Group from Advanced Science Research Center, GC/CUNY.

Visit from Prof. Alois Jungbauer

Last week we had the pleasure to host Prof. Alois Jungbauer from BOKU - Universität für Bodenkultur Wien and Head of Institute of Bioprocess Science and Engineering.

New publication "Discovery of phosphotyrosine-binding oligopeptides with supramolecular target selectivity"

Global Machine Olfaction Technologies conference OSMOCOSM

Last week Prof.Cecília Roque gave a talk at the Global Machine Olfaction Technologies conference OSMOCOSM (https://www.osmocosm.org/).

New publication is available

We are excited to share with you great news! Our latest paper has been published in Molecules as part of the Special Issue Green Chemistry in Portugal. This work explores "Stable and Oriented Liquid Crystal Droplets Stabilized by Imidazolium Ionic Liquids". 

Welcome to the team, Inês!

Inês holds a Bachelor degree in Biochemistry and just started her final master thesis in  Biotechnology, both from FCT-NOVA. At our lab, she will be working on the Non-invasive and fast identification of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria within our #SCENT_project.

We wish that she achieves her personal goals and hope that this experience will be worthy for her future!
