Abstract The valorization of seaweeds has generated unprecedented interest in recent years due to their unique chemical characteristics. The taxonomic differentiation between Chlorophyta, Rhodophyta, and Ochrophyta is often supported by their contrasting chemical characteristics. Polar lipids are the most abundant class of lipids in several seaweeds species often labelled as valuable phytochemicals. Nevertheless, little is still known about how the polar lipidome of seaweeds varies within and am...

In the actual post-antibiotic era, novel ways of rethinking antimicrobial research approaches are more urgent than ever. Natural compounds with antimicrobial activity such as fatty acids and monoacylglycerols have been investigated for decades. Additionally, the interest in other lipid classes as antimicrobial agents is rising. This review provides an overview on the research about plant and marine lipids with potential antimicrobial activity, the methods for obtaining and analyzing these compou...

Brown seaweeds are known to present components with appealing bioactive properties eliciting great interest for industrial applications. However, their lipid content is generally disregarded beyond their fatty acid (FA) composition. This study thoroughly characterized the lipid profile of two brown seaweeds collected from Portuguese coast, the native Bifurcaria bifurcata and the invasive Sargassum muticum species, and bioprospecting for antioxidant activity. An integrated state-of-the-art approa...

Abstract Public attitudes are vital for the successful implementation of management strategies and conservation programs. However, contradictory interests among different stakeholders can create important setbacks, creating barriers to achieve conservation goals. The endangered Iberian wolf (Canis lupus signatus) occupies now only 20 % of its historical distribution area, in Portugal, and its reduction was mostly due to direct human persecution. Here, we assessed locals’ attitudes towards the Ib...

Abstract Biomaterials combining biochemical and biophysical cues to establish close-to-extracellular matrix (ECM) models have been explored for cell expansion and differentiation purposes. Multivariate arrays are used as material-saving and rapid-to-analyze platforms, which enable selecting hit-spotted formulations targeting specific cellular responses. However, these systems often lack the ability to emulate dynamic mechanical aspects that occur in specific biological milieus and affect physiol...

Palmaria palmata is an edible red macroalga widely used for human consumption and valued for its high protein value. Despite its low total lipid content, it is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). This seaweed has been scarcely explored with regard to its lipid composition. The polar lipids of seaweeds are nowadays recognized as important phytochemicals contributing to their add value valorization and providing support for claims of potential health benefits. The present study aimed to disclose ...

Human health resources (HHR) are the keystone of any health system, by delivering health services to the population. According to the WHO, a shortage of the health workforce (physicians and nurses) in the future is expected. On the one hand, ageing populations will need more and different healthcare; on the other hand, the physician’s age average in Europe is increasing. The perspective of the sudden retirement of large groups of professionals in a short time is a main problem to address. Moreov...

Understanding imbalances between the demand and supply of the health workforce is essential for the improvement of many health outcomes, such as equity access to healthcare services targeted by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in 2015. Within this context, it is crucial to have tools to support the distribution of the human health resources (HHR) considering the population needs. Many healthcare modelling exercises have been undertaken with the purpose of supporting the decision-...
