NOVA Medical School is a modern and innovative Medical School based on three pillars: Education, Research, and Community. The Research pillar (NMS Research) aims at improving translational science and medicine, in a bench-to-bedside approach. NMS Research is focused on discovering and developing new diagnostic tools and treatments and ensuring that proven strategies for disease treatment and prevention are implemented within the community.
NMS Research is committed to stimulate science of excellence and new discoveries – vaccines, health literacy tools, biomarkers – and identify opportunities for technology transfer with the promotion of joint ventures between academia and private and public institutions.
NMS Research's multi-institutional environment enables testing of basic research findings in clinical settings, with proven interventions becoming standard practice, increasing the speed at which new treatments reach patients, and improving health and lives.
Four FCT-funded Research Units constitute the core of NMS Research: CHRC, iNOVA4Health, ToxOmics and CINTESIS.
In addition, the above-mentioned Research Units are integrated into three Associate Laboratories (LS4Future, REAL and RISE), with the aim of enhancing collaborative research work, boosting researchers' careers, and responding to the challenges of sustainable development in a conscientious, dutiful, and ground-breaking manner.
NMS is also a founding member of two Collaborative Laboratories: Value4Health Colab – aiming at the acceleration of the fundamental restructuring in healthcare delivery towards a paradigm shift to Value-Based Healthcare and Patient Empowerment – and Colab Trials – aiming at exploiting and optimising clinical information to produce and make accessible clinical data in real-time; increasing knowledge and expertise in innovative methodologies for clinical trial designs; training health professionals in the implementation of research projects; and increasing the community's literacy in clinical research.
Value for Health CoLAB (VOH.CoLAB) is a private, non-profit association founded by Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Fraunhofer Portugal, Vodafone Portugal and CUF.
CoLAB TRIALS' mission is to foster innovation in clinical research in Portugal.
NMS Research tackles, with the power of science, work aptitude and collaborative approach, the main challenges of contemporary health research on a global level, such as equality and equity in access to health services and care, population ageing, eHealth, methods and systems to deal with big data and complex biomedical information, security and privacy.
NMS Research: improving Health today for saving Lives tomorrow.
