The Centre for Biomedical Research (CBMR) is dedicated to the investigation and treatment of disease. The CBMR is composed of researchers from diverse research areas encompassing the Department of Biomedical Sciences and Medicine, Biological Sciences and Bioengineering and Chemistry and Pharmacy in addition to a number of clinicians and medical researchers based in the Hospital of Algarve.
The broad, strong research community within the CBMR ensures that this centre is in a unique position to collaborate across a broad range of research expertise resulting in a dynamic, highly productive research environment.
The CBMR scientific research core is composed of 40 fully integrated members, all of whom are active, experienced scientists with relevant scientific output and strong track records regarding student and postdoctoral supervision.
The role of CBMR is very relevant to develop and strengthen the Algarve Region in Health Sciences namely by fostering a highly collaborative approach involving scientists, engineers, and medical teams and by reinforcing the University/Hospital relationship in the Algarve.
