“No iBET temos projetos de investigação com parceiros internacionais de grande dimensão”
Selected interview highlights:

- The nomination [for US NAE] results from my contribution as a scientist and as a professor in biopharmaceutical development – new therapeutic molecules – to bridge the gap between academia and industry.
- I feel a great support from the Oeiras City Council regarding Science. The City Council interacts with scientists and also cherishes the institutions.
