Center for Cell-Based Therapy

Genetic alterations that make a type of brain cancer more aggressive were identified

Research focusing on glioblastomas contributes to prognosis and helps find therapeutic targets. The results of the study were published in the journal Tumor Biology

Success of stem cell therapy for diabetes depends on pre-transplant immune condition

In a study published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, researchers at the Center for Cell-Based Therapy show that the therapeutic effect is relatively short-lived in patients with more autoreactive lymphocytes before treatment

Initial findings of BIPMed were presented during FAPESP Week

Data from a study involving carriers of dystonia presented in Michigan demonstrate the importance of gathering genetic data on reference populations in Brazil

Launch of Latin America's first public human genome database

The platform was developed as part of BIPMed, the Brazilian Initiative on Precision Medicine, an effort promoted by members of five research centers supported by FAPESP

A bridge between education and research

Casa da Ciência, the education arm of a research center supported by FAPESP, brings together researchers, schoolteachers and students

Research on stem cell biology

RIDC focuses on advanced and applied research on stem cell biology. Processes will be developed for the large-scale production under good manufacturing practice conditions

Technology for the market

The Center for Research in Cell Therapy is seeking partners to transfer the recombinant factors developed by the RIDC

Video: interview with Marco Antônio Zago

The director of the Center for Research in Cell Therapy talks about the investigations conducted by the RIDC (in portuguese)
