The i3S consortium, headed by the University of Porto, brings together four institutions and researchers from several schools of the University of Porto. The i3S results from the long-term collaboration between IBMC, INEB and IPATIMUP, encompassing joint projects, co-supervision of PhD students, sharing of large equipment and employment of research staff under coordinated policies. The 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. This combination creates an environment favourable for real breakthrough research and translation of discoveries into the clinic. The i3S provides a vibrant environment for new scientific discoveries and translation into improvements in health care. The i3S focuses on three Integrative Programs: Cancer, Host Interaction and Response, and Neurobiology and Neurologic Disorders.
