Cristiano Mota e Maria João Romão, do laboratório Macromolecular Crystallography da UCIBIO no Departamento de Química da FCT NOVA, identificaram o funcionamento de uma proteína capaz de reduzir dióxido de carbono (CO2) presente na atmosfera. Os resultados publicados na revista ACS Catalysis, em colaboração com investigadores do ITQB NOVA indicam novos caminhos para resolver um dos maiores desafios atuais para a sustentabilidade do planeta: a neutralidade carbónica.

Paula Branco, researcher at LAQV and professor at the Chemistry Department - FCT NOVA, was elected the new president of the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ).

The Microbial Stress group is looking for a highly motivated postdoc to integrate their team, which aims to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in the detoxification/homeostasis of metals and reactive oxygen species in pathogenic microorganisms.

Using combinations of molecules that form deep eutectic systems, Ana Rita Duarte, leader of the des.solve lab at LAQV - FCT NOVA, was able to ally anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties of natural occurring molecules, such as limonene, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory substances, such as ibuprofen, creating a new formulation that unveils a potential chemotherapeutical deep eutectic solvent (DES) for cancer treatment.
