Development of BIOnanotechnologies based on Extracellular Vesicles for early diagnosis, prognosis and therapy of atherosclerotic disease (BIOVEA)
Various biomarkers have been proposed for the diagnosis and prognosis of acute coronary syndrome, however none for stable coronary disease. Identification of biomarkers that augment established clinical indicators, may allow earlier diagnosis of coronary disease, as well as improved recognition of the risk of complications and cardiovascular death. Additionally, this would pave the way for biomarkers, such as extracellular vesicles, to be employed as precise therapeutic agents in these diseases.
New awards for our junior lab members!
Congratulations to our junior lab members, students at Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Giulia Angheluta and Teodora Ciobotea, for their newest achievements! Giulia has been awarded the 3rd prize at FameLab and the 1st prize at MEDICS for her project involving mRNA vaccines, while Teo has received a distinction from the European Conference of Psychiatry and Mental Health "Galatia 2021" for her review on the applications of structural biology in psychiatry.
Annual Scientific Meeting & 13th National Pathology Symposium
In spite of the challenges the entire scientific community is facing nowadays, the “Victor Babeș” National Institute of Pathology is delighted to invite you once again to its Annual Meeting & 13th National Pathology Symposium, held in virtual format November 5-7, 2020. Internationally renowned speakers will join our experts in breaking down the current research trends in cellular and molecular pathology, histopathology, nephropathology, neuropathology and neurodegeneration, as well as discussing state-of-the-art applications of omics in pathology. Already a tradition of our Symposium, the short communication session for young researchers will award the brightest and most promising investigator with a high performance laptop offered by RoneXprim. We look forward to meet you all online!
Leica Live-Cell Imaging Workshop
As part of an ongoing series of annual scientific events, Leica Microsystems, in collaboration with Victor Babeș Institute of Pathology, a Leica Reference Site, is organizing a workshop demonstrating confocal and super-resolution microscopy techniques. The workshop will be held in the bioimaging facility of the Victor Babeș Institute, between the 18th and 20th of October 2016. Participants will be able to test the STED3X system for fixed and live-cell imaging applications and attend talks.
Leica Cryo-EM Workshop
Leica Microsystems and Victor Babeș Institute of Pathology are organizing a hands-on cryo-electron microscopy workshop, the first of its kind in Romania. This course will briefly demonstrate the most widely employed methods for cryo-EM sample preparation. It will take place on the 20th and 21st of February 2018 and is aimed at early-career scientists (PhD students and post-docs) working in transmission electron microscopy or related fields.
