Feature story

Débora MARTINS MARTINEZ is a receipient of an ICGEB SMART Post-doc 

Mobility: Brazil to Uruguay – Lab. de Sintese Orgânica Limpa-LASOL, Univ. Federal de Pelotas, Pelotas/RS, Brazil – SMART Post-doc level

Host Institute: Centro de Investigaciones Biomédicas (CEINBIO), Montevideo Host Supervisor: Prof. Rafael Radi

The development of a research project at one of the most important research groups in Biochemistry and RedoxProcess of South of America (i.e., CEINBIO, Montevideo), was an amazing experience. The period of my training abroad was important to consolidate a strong collaboration and improve my scientific skills, especially in biochemistry. The  mobility  from  Brazil  to Uruguay for a year (2016/17) was an “opening doors process”.

Project title: Oxidative process neutralization in membrane model systems: development and evaluation of lipophilic antioxidant analogues

Both countries have a great potential to be explored forcollaboration among researchers. Prof. Radi is an incredible supervisor, who, together with his colleagues, supported me on the development of my project. We have shared knowledge and common experiences, essential for improving professional and personal growth.  Being  part of CEINBIO research group, through ICGEB, was fundamental to my career.

Collaboration programmes like this are key for human and scientific development, and are instrumental for a positive change in our society.

Massimo Caputi: Alumni Ambassador of the month

I stepped inside the ICGEB in Trieste for the first time in 1991. At the time, I was an undergraduate student, with no research experience, looking for a laboratory that would guide me in a small thesis project, which I needed to graduate. It never occurred to me then that the ICGEB would become my home for the next five years.
