Young Investigator’s Projects for Collaborative Cross-disciplinary Studies at iMed.ULisboa

In 2018, iMed.ULisboa launched a call for Young Investigator’s Projects for Collaborative Cross-disciplinary Studies proposals to encourage collaborative efforts across traditional boundaries, with a view to adding value to their existing activities.

The results have recently been released. Applications were reviewed by an international expert panel. Three projects were recommended for funding, one entitled “New molecules to characterize & treat demyelinating lesions” led by Adelaide Fernandes (Neuron-Glia Biology in Health and Disease), other entitled “3D printing-based technology using mesenchymal stem cells for personalized psoriasis therapy” led by Joana Marto (Nanostructured Systems for Overcoming Biological Barriers) and the other “Development of an advanced topical insulin formulation for skin burn regeneration: an experimental approach from fundamental to translational research” led by Catarina Reis (Nanostructured Systems for Overcoming Biological Barriers

Each project received 5 000 € and will now run for one year, reporting back on scientific achievements by the end of the project period.
