Secondment Guida Bento- Oroboros, Austria

Guida Bento from CNC UC was doing a one-month secondment at Oroboros Instruments, Austria working in collaboration with Filomena Silva and Tímea Komlódi.

The aim of their work was to unravel the effect of etomoxir on fatty acid oxidation in comparison to unspecific inhibitory side effects on mitochondrial respiration. Moreover, she was gaining experience with the gold standard O2k-technology for high-resolution respirometry, as well as IPR and technology transfer and creation of value between academic and non-academic partners.
