Fundraising projects
Science needs everyone’s support. Yours too!
The fundamental and applied biomedical research is indispensable for the prosperity of our society, and it must be facilitated and supported by the state. This social responsibility lies however also on individuals and on the private sector which, through donations, make faster progress possible.

Below you can find the fundraising projects we collaborate with:
Fundraising for research on mitochondrial cytopathies
The Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics (LBG) at CNC started a campaign to raise awareness and funding for mitochondrial diseases’ research, one of the main expertises of this laboratory. These are chronic and highly debilitating diseases, frequently causing death during childhood. We hope this project to bring new resources to LBG in order to acquire new equipment that will facilitate research and also diagnosis for more people. For more information on the campaign please follow LBG’s events.
Health Marathon (“Maratona da Saúde”)
“Maratona da Saúde”, a novel initiative in Portugal, is a fundraising project through science communication events aiming at raising awareness of the public and promoting biomedical research. Biomedical research is a unique subject with the potential to bring hope to people and to make disease prevention and treatment possible. The innovative aspect of this initiative lies on joining entertainment to science communication, either through comedy, music or acting. This strategy has proven success in other countries, and it’s an original way to bring information and hope to people, and to serve the society. “Maratona da Saúde” is committed to have the Portuguese population’s confidence and trust, and gathered the support of key partners, namely the public radio and television station (RTP), several national research centers (like CNC, IGC, Champalimaud Foundation, IPATIMUP), Caixa Geral de Depósitos, Portugal Telecom, among others. For more information please check the website.
