Researcher who wants to call for a post-doctoral fellowship (FCT call: closing at June 28)


Very recently we found that low doses of ionizing radiation (IR) promote tumor growth and metastasis by enhancing angiogenesis (1). Our work was focused, in an innovative way, in the vasculature that surrounds the tumor and receives relatively low doses of IR during treatment. We demonstrated that low-dose IR accelerates embryonic angiogenic sprouting during zebrafish development and promotes adult angiogenesis during zebrafish fin regeneration (1). Therefore, according to our findings lowdose IR induces angiogenesis in vivo but, there is no evidence that it enhances neovascularization in ischemic disease, our overall objective through this proposal.
