Biopartitioning & Purification Conference 2022

Last week, two of our PhD students attended the BPP2022 – BIOPARTITIONING & PURIFICATION CONFERENCE, in Aveiro. Henrique Costa presented some of his PhD work about “Strategies for the purification of cephalopod-specific structural proteins with biotechnological potential” and Carlos Costa with the poster “Affinity reagents towards the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein”.

Review about ligands for SARS-CoV-2 spike protein

We have a freshly published paper in Biotechnology Advances. In this work, the authors explore “Native, engineered and de novo designed ligands targeting the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein”.  This work was developed under the scope of the Pure Project, financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020.
