Oxide plays a key role in cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases as well as cancer. Experiments conducted within the scope of RIDC REDOXOME reveal a hitherto unknown mechanism underlying the formation of nitroso thiols.
Initiative supported by FAPESP, USP, UNICAMP and global partners sets out to discover new molecules against tropical parasitic diseases. Its aim is to develop effective and affordable drugs.
The fellowship holder will work at a project at RIDC CeMEAI, studying fluid/structure interaction in the context of Wheatley heart valve modelling.
A study linked to the Food Research Center aims to evaluate the effects of fruits polyphenols intake on metabolism.
Technique developed at Human Genome and Stem Cell Research Center, hosted by the University of São Paulo, produced hepatic tissue in the laboratory in only 90 days and could become an alternative to organ transplantation in future.
A Brazilian team at FAPESP-supported CRID identified the strategy used by immune cells to combat the pathogen Mayaro virus, which causes symptoms similar to those of chikungunya fever. These results pave the way for the development of drugs.
The FAPESP-funded Center for Cell-Based Therapy explored the action mechanism of a microRNA that reduces tumor size and blocks metastasis when overexpressed.
