Quantum teleportation communicates the state of a single photon to a device with billions of atoms
Researchers at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands and the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil have shown that information encoded in a quantum bit (qubit) consisting of a single photon can be teleported to the mechanical motion of an optomechanical device comprising billions of atoms.
Modified protein from rattlesnake venom permits development of drug to modulate blood clotting
Researchers in Brazil and Belgium have developed a molecule of pharmaceutical interest from collinein-1, a protein found in rattlesnake venom. They used a technique called PEGylation to make the molecule, now called PEG-rCollinein-1, more stable in the organism and resistant to the immune system, obtaining a drug candidate to modulate blood clotting.

Brazil has the potential to lead the world carbon market
Brazil has the potential to lead the emerging market for carbon capture and storage, which is fundamental to achieve the climate change mitigation target of temperatures more than 1.5 °C -2.0 °C below the pre-industrial average.
