The high impact journal Dalton Transactions from the Royal Society of Chemistry, which covers all aspects of inorganic and organometallic chemistry, including biological inorganic chemistry, has newly published the themed issue Frontiers in Radionuclide Imaging and Therapy, A chemical journey from naturally radioactive elements to targeted theranostic agents dedicated to the contributions of our colleague Isabel Santos to the advancement of science in the field of radiopharmaceutical chemistry on the occasion of her recent retirement. This special issue guest-edited by our colleague João D. G. Correia and Professors Angela Casini and Chris Orvig from the Universities of Cardif and British Columbia, respectively, covers various relevant aspects of the use of radionuclides in biomedical/clinical applications. Apart from Isabel´s outstanding contributions to the inorganic chemistry community, the fact that she was the first President of the Centre for Nuclear Sciences and Technology (C2TN) is highlighted. Moreover, it is also emphasised that Isabel pioneered in Europe a move towards inclusion of women in science and has been a role model for many of her female students, co-workers and international collaborators.

Congratulations and thank you Isabel.

Marta Almeida Leads Two New European Project

ClimACT is a 1.37 M€ project approved within the Low Carbon Economy priority area of the Interreg Sudoe program. The project aims at promoting the transnational cooperation to solve common problems from the Southwest Europe region. More information in this link.

LIFE Index-Air is another 1.37 M€ project approved within the Environment and Resource Efficiency priority area of the LIFE Program. The main objective is to incorporate a database of outdoor and indoor air quality and a package of models to develop an innovative and versatile policy tool that will establish a relation between population exposure to mixtures of PM compounds and emission sources.

Pedro Vaz NLO (July 2017)

pedrovazPedro Vaz, Researcher of C2TN, was recently appointed as the new National Liaison Officer (NLO) with the International Atomic Energy Agency. We believe that he will carry out this mission with commitment and contribute to the prestige of Portugal with the IAEA (FCT).
He also became a member of the Editorial Board of the "European Journal of Radiology" (ELSEVIER), since April 2017.

IAEA (April 2017)

iaea casestudiesThe IAEA has published online at Neutron/IBA Case Studies a set of 20 case studies about the use of neutrons and accelerators to solve problems of societal relevance. Three of these studies were based on the work of C2TN researchers. 1) Rescuing ancient glazed tiles using neutron tomography (Isabel Prudêncio et al.); 2) The air that we breathe (Marta Almeida et al.); 3) Alloying Kinetics in Contact Metallization for CMOS (Nuno Barradas et al.) These report recognize and reward the merit of C2TN Researchers Nuno Barradas, Marta Almeida and Isabel Prudêncio.

João Carlos Waerenborgh (Fev 2017)

joaocarlosJoão Carlos Bentes Waerenborgh, researcher of C2TN of Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, was elected member representative of Portugal in the International Board on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (IBAME), by the active Mössbauer spectroscopists in Portugal. As defined in its constitution the objectives of IBAME are to advance the diffusion of knowledge in the field of the Mössbauer Effect and its applications, to promote the activities of the international community in this interdisciplinary field of basic and applied research, to attempt the harmonization of venues and dates of the various international and continental Mössbauer conferences in order to avoid duplications, and to encourage the participation of young research workers and research workers of weak resource countries. Furthermore IBAME elaborates recommendations for the nomenclature to be used in publications on results achieved by using Mössbauer spectroscopy.

Sandra CV - Food Irradiation Technologies (March 2017)

sandracvOfficial Cover of the Book "Food Irradiation Technologies", currently in print, with the seal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, which prestige us. One of the authors is Sandra Cabo Verde, researcher of C2TN, and the theme of the book focuses on ionizing radiation technologies, one of the areas of unique competence in the national scientific system, installed in this Campus. Congratulations to Sandra!
