Media news – Portugal

The Pure Project just hit the Portuguese media.

The European PURE project received a funding of nearly €3 million to develop sustainable processes to manufacture biopharmaceuticals, which include biological drugs such as antibodies and viral particles, used in cancer treatment and in vaccination, respectively. The project is coordinated by Cecília Roque, Principal Investigator at the Biomolecular Engineering Laboratory of the Applied Biomoelcular Sciences Unit (UCIBIO) at FCT-NOVA (NOVA School of Science and Technology, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa). Three other institutions participate in the PURE consortium: Universität für Bodenkultur Wien (BOKU, Austria), Universität Bayreuth (Germany) and Institute of Experimental and Technological Biology (Portugal).
