Brazilian startup develops a solution that assures efficient management of large truck fleets, attracting customers in agribusiness and mining.
Brazilian researchers studied the feasibility of a space maneuver that could be used to change the course of satellites and even send spacecraft beyond the Solar System with less fuel.
Study conducted to test a procedure based on ionization of atmospheric air eliminates 99% of Candida albicans fungus that causes hospital-acquired infections, without generating toxic waste.
A titanium oxide nanofiber sheet was developed by a FAPESP-funded research group through electrospinning and atomic layer deposition.
Experiments performed in Brazil show that systematic eradication of plants contaminated by cowpea aphid-borne virus (CABMV) can keep orchards producing for at least 25 months and avoid annual replanting.
Theoretical findings in a study performed by researchers with FAPESP’s support and published in Scientific Reports could be exploited in the development of quantum computing.
Brazilian startup wants to supply manufacturers of chemicals and foods with bioproducts that do not harm human or animal health and are produced by sustainable industrial processes.
The virtual platform enables R&D personnel in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, agribusiness and fine chemical industries to obtain toxicological and ecotoxicological assessments remotely without needing to have their own labs.
A system created in Brazil using cheap, biodegradable materials permits controlled release of larvicide and can be used in small amounts of water.
Study was presented to Workshop on Biopharma and Metabolomics covering research jointly funded by FAPESP and Agilent Technologies.
Brazilian researcher studied LHC experiment and found a signature highly similar to that of quark-gluon plasma in lead atom proton collision. Previous studies were based on collisions of heavy nuclei.
Developed by Brazilian researchers, the biosensor identifies the presence of different pathogens more quickly and cheaply than standard methods.
