Where Ideas grow
i3S researchers awarded with Prémio Norte Empreendedor

Being a PhD student is hard work and they sure have a lot on their plates. But that didn't stop Cláudia Azevedo, Andreia Almeida and Helena Macedo, PhD students in the Nanomedicines & Translational Drug Delivery group.


Under the supervision of group leader Bruno Sarmento, they've come up with SPIM, which allows a screening for intestinal permeability of molecules through a triple model of cell co-culture, thus streamlining R&D activities in the pharmaceutical industry setting. They had a 90-second pitch to get their idea across and, clearly, their communication skills are on point.
