Sea4Us Interview with NOVA Magazine

Sea4Us received  in behalf of NOVA Magazine to talk about the collaboration we maintain with NOVA Medical School. That afternoon Pedro Lima – the CSO of Sea4Us -, André Bastos and Beatriz Szwarc – researchers at Sea4Us -,  took her to see the laboratories and s0me experiments we were carrying out at the time.

The notion of responsibility accompanies the daily life of those who work here, but “it is a very natural environment,” André Bastos comments, revealing what it is like to work in a company that could be the source of a breakthrough for chronic pain relief, a disease that causes discomfort to so many people.

Sea4Us Interview with EXPRESSO | 2020 Programme

Expresso interviewed Sea4Us while covering the stories of 20 companies that received funds from the European Programme 2020 (in our case, Portugal2020). At the time, they interviewed Pedro Lima – Sea4Us CSO -, André Bastos and Joana Serrão – two of Sea4Us scientific researchers.

Those who suffer from chronic pain know the extent of the ordeal in which they live. But the answer may lie in the sea. More specifically on the Portuguese coast. Sea4us, a biotechnology company created in 2013, is developing a new painkiller for the treatment of chronic pain using active ingredients for drugs from marine organisms of the portuguese coastline. It is the wealth of the sea, still poorly explored, that guides the company in the identification and selection of marine specimens with potential, within an enormous biodiversity. Pedro Lima, one of the company’s researchers, says the team spends “many hours with bottles, often just watching marine life. And this is always the first step.”
