Paula M. Alves, coordinator of the Animal Cell Technology Unit and
CEO of iBET was nominated Vice-President of the European Society of Animal Cell
Technology

This nomination is a
further recognition of the strong
contribution of Paula M. Alves to the field of Animal Cell Technology over the
years. After being elected for the Executive Committee in 2005, Paula Alves was
later unanimously nominated Secretary in 2009, a position she held since then.
She will now continue to serve the Society, within the Executive Committee, as
vice-president. For ITQB Director, Cláudio Soares, "it is a great pride for
ITQB to have one of its scientists as vice-president of such a recognized
scientific society”.

ESACT is one of the
largest Animal Cell Technology institutions with over one thousand members,
including scientists and engineers in academic, medical and industrial R&D
and Production, in the medical services, in industry, and in the political and
regulatory bodies. The Society was founded in 1976 to create a forum for the
exchange of ideas on biological and engineering techniques to promote knowledge
and the use of human and animal cells e.g. for the manufacturing of products.

It is with an enormous pride that iBET recognizes this
accomplishment and congratulates Paula Alves for her determination and strong
commitment to this Society!
