  • [01] Dr Skourides talks to CNA about potential of a protein in cancer treatment

    Although the Laboratory of Developmental Biology and Nanobiotechnology at the University of Cyprus does not focus on cancer research, it has made significant research in the field of embryology, which could possibly help in the treatment of cancer.

    In an interview with CNA, Head of the Laboratory, Assistant Professor Dr Paris A. Skourides, talked about the breakthrough that was made by his research team, the results of which were recently published in the scientific journal ‘Development.'

    "This work was centered on exploring the role of a protein called FAK in the development of the embryo and specifically its role in morphogenesis. This protein was known to be essential in embryonic development but its precise role was not understood", he said.

    [02] Minister pledges to confront vested interests

    Justice and Public Order Minister Ionas Nicolaou has pledged that the government will clash with vested interests in order to bring to justice those responsible for the country's economic woes.

    He was speaking, on Sunday, during an event commemorating October 28, 1940 when Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas said "no" to Mussolini's demand to allow Italian troops to enter Greece.

    Nicolaou further stressed that the government is doing its utmost so that the country exits the crisis as soon as possible.
