Two best presentation prizes for ITQB Lab this month
At international meetings on Helicobacter Infections and Biometals
After being selected for an oral presentation, the work “NorH, The First Nitric Oxide Reductase of Helicobacter pylori” by the Molecular Genetics of Microbial Resistance Lab was considered the Best Presentation Overall, among all poster and oral presentations presented at the 10th International Workshop on Pathogenesis and Host Response in Helicobacter Infections, held in Helsingor, Denmark, this July. The presentation by post-doc Marta C. Justino reported the discovery and biochemical and pathophysiological characterization of this novel enzyme.
Another work by the Molecular Genetics of Microbial Resistance Lab, this time on the “Influence of stress conditions on iron homeostasis of Staphylococcus aureus”, by Lígia S. Nobre and co-authors, Catarina C. Godinho and Lígia M. Saraiva, received the best poster prize at the International Biometals 2012 meeting, which took place last week at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Belgium.
