Profile Information

The Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier (ITQB/NOVA) is an academic research centre of the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. Its mission is to carry out scientific research and postgraduate teaching in chemistry, life sciences, and associated technologies, for the benefit of human health and the environment.

The strong expertise in Molecular Biosciences present at ITQB/NOVA drives research in two strategic societal challenges: 1) Molecular Basis of Health and Disease and 2) Biological Resources and Sustainable Development. In this line, ITQB coordinates two Research Units – MOSTMICRO and GREEN-IT - and is further involved in a third one – iNOVA4HEALTH.

With a track-record of scientific excellence and a focus for internationalization, ITQB/NOVA is a leading centre for advanced training in Portugal.

Currently with 59 independent teams, ITQB/NOVA hosts more than 400 researchers (including 135 PhD students) with different backgrounds and research interests, who contribute to the vibrant scientific atmosphere on site.
