  • How can inorganic chemistry help in the development of novel medicines, particularly for neglected diseases? In this talk delivered in a Thematic Symposium (Chemistry in the battle of neglected diseases) in the Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Chemical Society (2021), Dr. Eduardo Sousa presents some key hints on the use of inorganic chemical fundamentals as novel strategies for the development of new drugs.

  • What are gas sensing proteins? Why are they so important for life? How can they sense small molecules such as O2, NO and CO? In this talk delivered in the Annual Meeting of the Portuguese Society of Biochemistry (2021), Dr Eduardo Sousa presents briefly some principles of gas sensing proteins, focusing on heme-based sensors that are the largest family of such systems. He describes some key aspects of two systems: FixL (involved symbiosis and nitrogen fixation in Rhizobia) and DevS/DosT (involved in the dormancy process in Mycobacterium tuberculosis).
