Research at the cutting edge of knowledge

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) supports Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) selected for funding for a period of up to eleven years. Each RIDC is expected to establish hub of excellent research in focus area, and must actively seek out and develop opportunities to have its research results contribute to high-impact applications, as well as contributing to education and dissemination of knowledge.

Post-doctoral Fellowship in Data Science / Visual Analytics

Project linked to the Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry aims at advancing the state-of-the-art research in crime data analysis, crime pattern identification, and crime prediction.

Post-doctoral Fellowship in Immunology

A research project at CeTICS that aims at studying the immune mechanisms involved in the envenomations by poisonous animals is open for applications.

Post-doctoral Fellowship in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Applied to Transcriptomics Analysis

Selected candidate will join the Computational Systems Biology Laboratory (CSBL) research group in São Paulo to take part in a research project under the aegis of CRID.

A key mechanism of silica-induced inflammation is discovered

French researchers made the discovery by analyzing blood from denim sandblasters. The results were presented at the Inflamma symposium organized by the Center for Research on Inflammatory Diseases in Brazil.

Biosensor uses molecule derived from bee venom to detect bacteria in food and drink

Presented at a symposium held by the Center for Development of Functional Materials, the device is capable of identifying the presence of different pathogens more quickly and cheaply than standard methods.

Bioactive material is produced by 3D printing

Researchers at CeRTEV simplifies and cheapens the fabrication of glass-ceramic material that can be used in ocular prosthetics and dentin hypersensitivity treatment, among other applications.

Shape influences the properties of nanomaterials

Researchers at the Center for Development of Functional Materials developed a method to identify the ideal shape of nanoparticles with specific properties or characteristics.

A mechanism that makes infants more likely than adults to die from sepsis is discovered

Scientists at the Center for Research on Inflammatory Diseases (CRID) show why pediatric patients with sepsis suffer from more inflammation and organ injury than adults. New treatment strategies may be tested.

New model facilitates the prediction of crystallization in glass particles

A study by researchers at CeRTEV can help scientists develop new glass and glass-ceramic materials and predict glass stability during use.
