  • Advances in Animal Health, Medicine and Production A Research Portrait of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Animal Health (CIISA), University of Lisbon, Portugal This book brings together in a review manner a comprehensive summary of high-quality research contributions from the different research teams and their collaborators, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Animal Health (CIISA). The topics span from animal behaviour and welfare…
  • An identification key for insects of the Culicoides genus present in Portugal was elaborated in the Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases Laboratory of CIISA. This identification key, with scientific and pedagogical purposes and directed to researchers and students, followed work included in the PhD thesis of David Wilson Russo Ramilo (Post-doctoral researcher of CIISA), titled ?Phenotypic and genetic characterization of Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in Portugal and comparison of the effect of…
  • Maria da Conceição Peleteiro, team leader of CIISA’s Pathology Lab, was the winner of the Career Award in the 2018 edition of the review Veterinária Atual. CIISA Coordination congratulates Professor Conceição Peleteiro for her distinguished journey across veterinary education and research, university management and commitment to the enhancement and public affirmation of the veterinary profession
  •  In a long–lasting series of collaborations with national and international institutions including the Faculty of Sciences and Technology (Universidade Nova de Lisboa), The Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), Newcastle University (UK) and Queen’s University (Canada), FMV-CIISA researchers are contributing to the elucidation of the unique molecular mechanisms used by anaerobic bacteria for cellular attachment of cellulosomes. Cellulosomes (Fig. 1) are one of Nature’s most intricate multi-enzyme complexes dedicated to degrade…

  • A study developed by CIISA scientists in collaboration with colleagues at the Universities of Newcastle (UK), Copenhagen (DK), Leeds (UK) and the CNRS (France) revealed that the expansion of protein modules observed in multi-enzyme complexes expressed by rumen bacteria, such as Ruminococcus flavefaciens, contributes to an extended carbohydrate binding profile that supports efficient plant cell wall degradation. The authors used high-through put technologies to express a large number of proteins…
