The Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology is uniquely placed to take a decisive lead in Biomedicine at both basic and applied levels, due to the diverse backgrounds of its researchers. The close interaction with large scale hospitals, namely the Coimbra University Hospital (CHUC) and Coimbra Portuguese Institute of Oncology (IPO), Pharmaceutical Companies and the Biotechnology Innovation Center – Biocant, is a driving force in promoting the development of translational research.

Development of new technologies based on solid fundamental research, and stimulated by the growing interest in translational research, led to the official establishment of the Biotechnology specialization domain at CNC, reorganized as such at the CNC/UC-BIOTECH located at Biocant.

Research at CNC is therefore organized in two domains – Biomedicine and Biotechnology –, each subdivided in three scientific areas.


Neuroscience and disease

Metabolism, aging and disease

New preventive and therapeutic strategies
