CIIMAR Probio Vaccine project wins BIP award

The CIIMAR project Probio Vaccine will receive € 10,000 from U.Porto Inovação BIP proof programme to enhance research results. 


ProbioVaccine project responds to the very current need of oral aquaculture vaccines, given the complexity of vaccinating fish by injectable route, as explained by the CIIMAR reseracher Cláudia Serra, the researcher responsible for the project.


BIP Proof, in addition to being an important recognition for the team, is also an incentive to continue working. The value of the prize will essentially be used to improve the technology and also in vivo tests on the target aquaculture species, in order to establish the protective effect of oral vaccines.
