Profile Information

UCIBIO - Unidade em Ciências Biomoleculares Aplicadas / Applied Molecular Biosciences Unit

The Research Unit on Applied Molecular Biosciences, UCIBIO, is formed by the collaborative efforts of researchers from the Universities of Porto and NOVA. The host institution is REQUIMTE, a non-profit scientific association between the two Universities. UCIBIO´s research activities occur mainly at the campus of Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the NOVA University of Lisbon (FCT-NOVA), and at the Faculty of Sciences (FC-UP), the Faculty of Pharmacy (FF-UP) and Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar (ICBAS-UP) from the University of Porto.

UCIBIO combines key expertise in Chemistry and Biological Sciences with an ambitious strategic plan to maximize its national and international impact in terms of scientific productivity, advanced training and translation to society. In the national context, UCIBIO’s key strength lies on its broad scope of fundamental and applied research, standing at the interface of Chemistry, Biology and Engineering to address pertinent questions at atomic, molecular, sub-cellular and cellular levels, including cell-to-cell interactions and population evolutionary dynamics.
