2016 INTROBOTSampler

Project ROBOSAMPLER – Development of a ground robotic system for radiological and heavy metals monitoring in estuarine environments. It has the ability to collect mudflat samples for further radiological analysis. Its technology and configuration allow interventions in estuarine environments, giving it large versatility in the tasks and missions spectrum. See video.

Sponsorship: Portuguese technological company Introsys, SA - Integrators for Robotic Systems (INTROSYS), in partnership with the Instituto de Desenvolvimento de Novas Tecnologias (UNINOVA) e o Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear (IST/ITN). This project is patented.

2017   Catarina Galinha (SIC Mulher)The PhD Work of Catarina Galinha was subject of a television play in the program "Retratos de Saúde".
“Selenium is an essential micronutrient for human health, but its deficiency may affect at least one billion people worldwide. Plants and plant-derived products transfer the soil-uptaken Se to humans through the food chain, which is hardly enough when soils have been always poor or already exhausted in bioavailable Se species. Other than agronomic methods for enhancing Se levels in cereals, such as soil and foliar supplements, seed enrichment may be viewed as an alternative Se-biofortification technique.”
