Fahraeus Gold Medal Award a Carlota Saldanha

Fahraeus Medal miniDecorreu, de 2 a 6 de julho de 2018, em Cracóvia (Polónia), The Joint Conference of Three Societies, constituída pelas Sociedades The European Society for Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation, The International Society of Clinical Hemorheology e The International Society of Biorheology (ESCHM-ISCH-ISB).

A Fahraeus Gold Medal Award foi idealizada por Alfred Lewin Copley (1910-1992), considerado o primeiro cientista, em 1952, a definir o conceito de hemorreologia. A medalha apresenta numa das faces o retrato de Robin Fahraeus (1888-1968), reconhecido como o “pai” da hemorreologia moderna. Na outra face configura um vaso sanguíneo, dentro do qual está um glóbulo vermelho. Este prémio é atribuído como reconhecimento da valiosa contribuição a quem se distinguiu no domínio da hemorreologia. O cientista vencedor resulta da votação secreta efetuada pelos representantes das Sociedades de hemorreologia nacionais dos países membros da ESCHM. O primeiro a receber foi Shu Chien, em 1981. Em intervalos de dois a três anos, aquando da realização das Conferências da ESCHM, outros cientistas receberam o galardão, nomeadamente John Dormandi (1983), Holger Schmid-Schonbein (1985), Jean Francois Stoltz (1987), Tullio di Perri (1989), John Stuart (1991), Herbert Meiselman (1993), Albrecht Ehrly (1995), Siegfried Witte (1997), Gustav Born (2000), Sandro Forconi (2003), Michel Boisseau (2005), Michael Rampling (2007), Friedrich Jung (2011), Gerard Nash (2013) e Nadia Antonova (2016).

Carlota Saldanha congratula-se e sente-se honrada por lhe ter sido atribuída, este ano, a Fahraeus Gold Medal Award. Nadia Antonova fez a introdução do seu CV, após a qual apresentou a lição intitulada Multifunctional Life of Erythrocyte. Dedicou-a, como tributo e agradecimento, ao Professor Paulo de Souza Ramalho, com quem teve o privilégio de trabalhar e de quem recebeu muitos honrosos convites para participar como preletora em reuniões temáticas de oftalmologia. Foi a primeira vez que dedicou uma lição de homenagem. O Professor Souza Ramalho foi pioneiro em Portugal nos estudos da microcirculação com caracterização do grau de retinopatia em doentes de diferentes patologias, tais como diabetes, hipertensão, enfarte do miocárdio, doenças autoimunes e patologia ocular. A avaliação dos parâmetros hemorreológicos e bioquímicos avaliados permitem estabelecer associações com os marcadores obtidos na macrocirculação e na microcirculação. Foram incluídos na lição os estudos efetuados na microcirculação sublingual, por António Messias, e os desenvolvidos por Ana Santos Silva-Herdade em experimentação animal de modelos de inflamação, utilizando microscopia intravital.

News of the President of SPHM, Professor Carlota Saldanha

Prof. Carlota SaldanhaIn 19th of March of this year of 2018, the Professor Carlota Saldanha, recently jubilated, receive a tribute during a ceremony where the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon (FMUL) Professor Fausto Pinto granted, a medal school, by her example of dedication, loyalty, spirit of sacrifice and commitment that demonstrated over the many years she worked in FMUL. The Dean also thanks Professor Miguel Castanho Head of the Institute of Biochemistry for the initiative of this tribute and celebration. In this ceremony Professor José Fernandes e Fernandes dedicate a lecture to the honoree entitled “The Convergence of Macrocirculation with the Microcirculation”.

The tribute to Professor Carlota Saldanha was preceded by the IMM Monday Lecture “ titled Mechanistic Insight into Vascular Changes in the Pathogenesis of Diabetic Retinopathy” presented by Professor Sayon Roy from Boston University School of Medicine that dedicated his lecture to the honoree. At the end Professor Carlota Saldanha, was very appreciative and thanked all the words received, all the opportunities she had, in teaching, in research and in all working groups coordinated by herself. She tanked all friends in the audience, emphasizing that I had won a new friend, the Professor Miguel Castanho, and last but not lastly her sons. She told “this tribute is also a tribute to FMUL”.

PROFESSOR SAYON ROY AWARDED GOLD MEDAL BY THE ASSOCIATION FOR RESEARCH IN VISION AND OPHTHALMOLOGY

Professor Sayon RoyProfessor Sayon Roy from Boston University School of Medicine presented a IMM Monday Lecture titled Mechanistic Insight into Vascular Changes in the Pathogenesis of Diabetic Retinopathy on 19th March 2018. He was hosted by the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon and Professor Roy was introduced to the audience by the Head of the Department of Biochemistry, Professor Miguel Castanho.

Professor Roy dedicated the lecture in honor of Professor Carlota Saldanha who has been a distinguished member of IMM since its foundation and in acknowledgement of her contribution to science and education for decades. A tribute in honor of her devotion to FMUL was celebrated following Professor Roy’s lecture.
