Congratulations to Patrícia Pitrez

The research work of Patrícia Pitrez, just published in Nature Communications, has received a lot of attention by the national media! This study was focused on the vulnerability of Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome - smooth muscle cells (HGPS-SMCs) to shear stress. A microfluidic chip with HGPS-SMCs differentiated from induced pluripotent stem cells allowed the identification of [...]
