PORTUGAL has joined the celebrations of the European Biotech Week! The event will take place at the Health Sciences Research Centre of the Universidade da Beira Interior (CICS-UBI,) from 23 to 29 September!

During the week, we will disseminate, via CICS-UBI facebook, facts and curiosities about “Biotech in our daily lives”, and will occur several activities with students from Covilhã secondary schools, with the motto “Biotechnology challenges you…”.

On September 26th, there will be a Lunch Seminar entitled “Biodevice development to improve cancer diagnosis” by Professor Carla Cruz from CICS-UBI.
On September 27th, we will receive Professor Ana Coelho (ITQB, Lisboa) to perform a CICS-UBI/3rd Cycle Seminar entitled “MS based proteomics – applications to health sciences”.

And on the night of September 27, the CICS-UBI will develop activities under the European Researchers’ Night, under the theme SCIENCE IN THE CITY. A public space in the historic center of the city (Nata Lisboa – Covilhã) will welcome CICS-UBI researchers who will disclose the research carried out at our Centre, and demonstration actions of ongoing projects and/or products or processes that are under development.
