With the general aim of better understanding the human nervous system, neuroscience remains one of the most challenging areas in biomedical research with a scope that ranges from the molecule, to (...)


The INTERFACE Program brings together three internationally renowned institutions in the Lisbon area, with strong proficiency in the field of host-microbe interactions: Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica (ITQB NOVA), Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) and Instituto de Medicina Molecular (iMM).

ITQB/IGC/iMM provide the Interface program with a rich and exciting training and research environment that can be easily adjusted to specific expectations and needs. The Interface students will be exposed to a culture of rigor, excellence, innovation and cutting edge performance at (...)

The Lisbon Biomedical and Clinical Research PhD Program (LisbonBioMed) provides privileged education and training to generate PhDs in areas encompassing the full spectrum of biomedicine, based on the principle that science informs and shapes medicine, while human diseases provide critical clues for basic biological research.

The LisbonBioMed PhD Program encourages young basic and clinical researchers to work together, and to apply and produce new knowledge in the interplay between laboratory and clinical practice, acquiring a unique skill-set to succeed in international careers within the (...)

The Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics Doctoral Programme (M2B-PhD) joins Portuguese academic centres of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, distributed by 3 universities in 3 different cities (University of Lisbon, including the former Technical University of Lisbon, University of Porto and University of Coimbra)

There is an increasing demand for doctoral scientific training able to cope with quantitative reasoning in Molecular Sciences applied to Health Sciences. The aim of the “Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics” Doctoral Programme (M2B-PhD) is to train through research highly (...)

The changes and instabilities occurring with environment, communities and local or regional cultures have major impacts upon the individuals, with marked and often negative effects upon their health, wellbeing and quality of life. Influences are however reciprocal, since human activity and behaviours also influence the environment and communities. These complex and closely intertwined influences between the environment, the impact of humans upon it, and in turn its influence upon human health and wellbeing are the aspects that make up the scope of Environmental Health.

On these days of (...)
