Sezin Aday, member of our laboratory have won the SPCE-TC Registration Award for the Best Abstracts with the work entitled “A stable and reproducible human blood-brain barrier model derived from hematopoietic stem cells” in the 8th International Meeting of the Portuguese Society Stem Cells and Cell Therapies […]
Our Lab joined Science & Technology Week 2012! Every year, research institutes, universities, museums, schools of Portugal open their doors to students during “The Science and Technology Week” organized by CIENCIA VIVA. Last year, this event was held from November 19-24. We were happy to show our laboratories in Biocant Park and therefore explained a little [...]
Helena Vazão, PhD Student at University of Coimbra, defended her PhD on December, 18th. Congratulations!
Josephine was born and raised in Albstadt - a small city in the middle of the Suabian Alb in Germany. To be closer to the Alps, she moved for her studies to the nice city of Ulm. In 2012, she graduated in Biology and Chemistry at the University of Ulm where she worked on the [...]

Critiana’s thesis was supervised by Lino da Silva [...]
Lino Ferreira has been awarded with a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant. Only five projects to be executed in Portugal have been approved under this call. The ERC calls are targeting top researchers of any nationality who are based in, or willing to move to Europe, this year more than 4741 applications were received. [...]
The work reports for the first time a nanoparticle formulation able to modulate in vivo the subventricular zone neurogenic niche. The work is available in ACS Nano.
