Ricardo Chagas, researcher at LAQV-REQUIMTE (Sustainable Chemistry PhD Program), was distinguished with the SIVE OENOPPIA 2017 Prize (3rd edition), for the research work developed during his PhD on Protein haze formation in white wine - The critical involvement of sulfur dioxide in protein aggregation mechanism.
Six European Projects, representing a total of 3 M€ for three years, have been awarded to Biochemical Engineering Lab, led by Maria Reis, full professor at FCT-NOVA. These projects are run in collaboration with other research units and industry companies, and aim to study the production of biodegradable bioplastics by bacteria.
The PTNMR was awarded 4,8 million euros as a result of a recent call to support Research Infrastructure projects included in the Portuguese Roadmap of Research Infrastructures. The funding will support highly qualified human resources and new equipment to carry out advanced research on catalytic processes, smart materials, biomedical devices or pharmaceutical drugs, a key factor for establishing leading industries in emergent areas.
The event will include the presence of two distinguished guests, Alberto Credi of the University of Bologna, who will give a lecture titled "Making machines at the nanoscale" and Chris R. Lowe of the University of Cambridge, with the lecture "From fundamental science to clinical applications and Industry - The Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) ".
O Prémio Gulbenkian de Estímulo à Investigação 2016 Química e Arte foi atribuído a duas estudantes do Departamento de Conservação e Restauro da FCT NOVA.
UCIBIO’s key strength lies on its broad scope of fundamental and applied research standing at the interface of Chemistry and Biology to address pertinent questions at atomic, molecular, sub-cellular and cellular levels, including cell-to-cell interactions and population evolutionary dynamics.
LAQV ́s mission is to cooperate in a continuous, competent and efficient way to achieve a Sustainable development by promoting new technologies that aim to reduce or even eliminate undesirable substances in the design, production and uses of Chemicals.
The Department of Chemistry, is a permanent organic unity of the Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT / UNL), devoted to teaching, and scientific research and to provide services in areas of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering.
The Chemistry Department (DQ), Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa , founded in 1981, has recognized market implementation of education and employment, particularly so because of the novelty and specificity introduced by the course in Chemistry with which teaching at the School of Chemistry began in 1981.
