Innovation for gene therapy

MagicCELLGene aims at developing a disruptive new technology DNA/RNAi transfection - MagicCELLGene focus on the site directed magnetic hyperthermia that creates focal hotspots on the cell membrane to allow the entry of therapeutic nucleic acids, with potential clinical applications in cell-based gene therapy.

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.
