Magnetic nanoparticles for improved diagnsotics of HIV/TB wins the Gilead Genese Prize

The Gilead Genese Prize will be instrumental for the construction of the capture MNPs and validation of molecular assays on patient samples. This endeavor is only possible due to the long-lasting collaboration between IHMT-NOVA TB Group lead by Miguel Viveiros and João Piedade for HIV and the Nanomedicine Group lead by Pedro V. Baptista at UCIBIO, Dept of Life Sciences, FCT-NOVA.

Potentiating angiogenesis arrest in vivo via laser irradiation of peptide functionalised gold nanoparticles


The proposed phototherapy extends the use of visible lasers in clinics, combining it with chemotherapy to potentiate cancer treatment. This approach allows the reduction of dose of anti-angiogenic peptide, reducing possible side effects, while destroying blood vessels supply critical for tumour progression.
