Estatísticas de Depósito da Comunidade (I3S)
The i3S consortium, headed by the UPorto, brings together four institutions and researchers from several schools of the UPorto, thus consolidating an extensive collaboration between all institutions that spans many years. The long-term collaboration between IBMC, INEB and IPATIMUP, from which stems i3S, encompasses joint projects, co-supervision of PhD students, sharing of large equipment and employment of research staff under coordinated policies. Six schools of the UPorto (FMUP, ICBAS, FMDUP, FCUP, FEUP and FFUP) and three hospitals (CH S João, CH Porto and IPO) also contribute to the activities of i3S. This wide participation of schools, research institutions and hospitals in a research institute is unique in Portugal and is a valuable asset for science and technology development, while creating an environment that feeds real breakthrough research and translation of discoveries into the clinic. The new building - completed in 2015 - is also a key element in the creation of this vibrant environment. This intricate network that is i3S focuses on three Integrative Programs: Cancer, Host Response and Interaction, and Neurobiology and Neurologic Disease.
