New project- Affi-Pred

New project alert! Affi-Pred is our laboratory’s most recent project about computational Toolbox for Discovery of new Affinity Ligands. Affinity ligands are key molecules in biopharmaceutical purification. The project focuses on using of molecular modeling techniques for the development of an innovative algorithm “Affi-Pred” (Affinity ligand Predictor), to apply in the discovery of next-generation synthetic …

International Conference on Bio-sensing Technology

Have you ever wanted to know more about artificial olfaction and (bio)sensing or even if olfaction-inspired tecnologies are the future of diagnostics?Carina and Susana answered these and other questions at the 8th Edition of the International Bio-sensing Technology Conference last week.

National Scientists Day

On May 16th was the National Scientist Day. We work daily to contribute to the advancement of knowledge and thus to the progress and well-being of society.

Biophysics Festival

The 4th edition of Biophysics Festival, a meeting of young biophyscists took place at Covilhã and our biomengs (Carlos, Inês, Arménio, Cátia and Jéssica) couldn’t miss the opportunity to attend it.Arménio, Cátia and Jéssica represented our team presenting posters whereas Carlos gave a lecture about “Novel affinity reagent for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein”.Congrats to all!🎉

BioProcess International Europe

Arménio Barbosa attended the Bioprocess International Europe in Viena between the 9th and 12th April.Our researcher presented his poster about “In silico Affinity ligands: Design and Discovery of small molecule adsorbents”.

Expo FCT

Last week we attended the Expo FCT at NOVA FCT where we explained our research projects to the visiting students. Students could see the work of the e-nose device and its application for bladder cancer diagnostics (Ensure project), the versability of proteins’ application in sensing (Proteios Project) and the importance of efficient bioseparation on the production of …
