Champalimaud Center for the Unknown Back
University accreditation does not apply to courses from this institution
The Champalimaud Foundation supports individual researchers and research teams working at the cutting edge of biomedical science. It aims to stimulate novel theoretical and practical methodologies by utilising the experience of both research scientists and medical practitioners.
The impact of progressive research – basic, applied and clinical - is typically far-reaching, affecting how illnesses and diseases are diagnosed and treated throughout the world. The Champalimaud Foundation aims to maximise the work being done in the fields of cancer research and neuroscience. Another primary objective is to make advances in the field of international vision research. As a result of this, the Foundation intends to make a significant contribution to the fight against vision-related illness and disease.
As it is a private organisation, the scope for the research initiatives and funding programmes of the Champalimaud Foundation is unrestrained by national borders. If a particular country is in a better position – governmentally, clinically and/or institutionally – to accommodate a certain type of biomedical research, the Foundation has the flexibility and freedom to respond quickly and to lend its support.
