With a great diversity of research themes and methodologies, ITQB provides a broad scope on scientific issues and stimulates the cooperation between research groups. ITQB researchers have excellent facilities, equipments and research support services at their disposal, contributing to a motivating working environment.
The scientific quality of the Institute is reflected in the number of scientific papers published in international peer-reviewed journals and in the researcher’s success in securing competitive national and international funds. The cooperative and international nature of the ITQB’s scientific activity is also evident in the collaborations established with other research institutions and companies worldwide.
ITQB maintains a strong partnership with three other institutions: Instituto de Biologia Experimental e Tecnológica (IBET), a non-profit private institution in the research-industry interface; Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), from Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, dedicated to biology and biomedicine, and the Chronic Diseases Research Center from the Faculdade de Ciências Médicas of Universidade Nova de Lisboa (CEDOC) with a strong connection to medicine.
