BioISI Digest | Global transmission suitability maps for dengue virus transmitted by Aedes aegypti from 1981 to 2019
José Lourenço published a new paper, on which the authors map the current and future transmission potential of dengue virus transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes from 1981 to 2019. These results are now available online and can contribute to the planning of disease control and prevention strategies.

The European Public Health Week aims to raise awareness about public health and promote collaboration among the public health community in Europe. Within this week, we share with you the concept of social prescribing, by means of Luciana Costa's testomonial.
BioISI Digest | Evidence for an association of prenatal exposure to particulate matter with clinical severity of Autism Spectrum Disorder
João Xavier Santos is the first author of a new paper, coordinated by Astrid Vicente, on which the effect of the exposure to particulate matter by pregnant women is associated with the severity of Austism Spectrum Disorder, later developed on in their babies, is assessed.
BioISI collaborates with AiR 351 art residency
The Plant Functional Genomics Research Group collaborates with Kim Schoen, a video and photography artist, who is developing her residency at the AiR 351 art organization.
BioISI Digest | Development of a QCM-based biosensor for the detection of non-small cell lung cancer biomarkers in liquid biopsies
Filomena Adega and Raquel Chaves are part of the list of authors of a new paper, coordinated by Paula Martins-Lopes, on which a new biosensor developed to detect non small cell lung cancer cells in liquid biopsies (e.g. serum), in a less invasive manner, is reported.
BioISI Digest | Mechanistic Insights into Polyphenols’ Aggregation Inhibition of α‑Synuclein and Related Peptides
Gabriel Martins is the first author of a new paper, coordinated by Nuno Galamba, on which molecular simulations techniques were used to understand the action mechanism of two polyphenols at a molecular level and improve drug design strategies to target neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson's disease.
