Rui Pacheco Defended PhD Thesis in Biotechnology and Biosciences | iBB | Scoop.it

Rui Cruz Pacheco defended his PhD thesis in Biotechnology and Biosciences on the 15th of April, 2020. The thesis, entitled “Production of first-and second-generation bioethanol by yeasts: global warming potential and fermentation productivity issues” was supervised by Carla Silva, Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa and Instituto Dom Luiz and co-supervised by Isabel Sá-Correia from BSRG-iBB. Rui prepared part of his PhD thesis in the laboratories of the BSRG examining factors that limit first-and second-generation fermentation productivity and improving industrial yeasts performance through genetic manipulation. Most of his work was dedicated to the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of bio-based ethanol production.

Mafalda Banazol de Santa Rita Cavalheiro will be defending her PhD thesis in Biotechnology and Biosciences at Instituto Superior Técnico, Monday the 12th of October 2020, at 2pm (https://videoconf-colibri.zoom.us/j/97930626637). During the last years, and under the supervision of Miguel Cacho Teixeira from BSRG-iBB, Mafalda studied molecular and biophysical properties that enable the fungal pathogen Candida glabrata to cause recalcitrant life threatening infections, based on its ability to evolve towards a drug resistance phenotype or to establish stable biofilms. The title of her thesis is “Deciphering Mechanisms of Pathogenesis in Candida glabrata: in the Crossroad Between Drug Resistance and Virulence”.

Ana Margarida Rosa will be defending her PhD thesis in Biotechnology and Biosciences on Wednesday the 29th january 2020 (10:30 H, amphitheater PA-3, Mathematics Building). During the last years, and under the supervision of Miguel Prazeres from BERG-iBB and Pedro Paulo from CQE-IST, Ana developed a cellulose-based system for the colorimetric detection of nucleic acids by exploring the recognition of biotin-labeled DNA hybrids by anti-biotin antibodies immobilized through ZZ-CBM chimeric proteins. These fusions combine carbohydrate-binding modules (CBM) with affinity to cellulose and double Z domains (ZZ) that bind to IgG antibodies. The title of the thesis is “DNA recognition system on bioactive paper using fusions of carbohydrate-binding modules and IgG-binding Z domains”.
