Biobanks are crucial tools for translational research. The biobank|CQE has been created to support the development and testing of new molecules with possible health benefits, and as a repository of human and non-human samples relevant to the Centre’s research.
The primordial objective of this unit is to provide researchers the access to tissues, cells, body fluids, etc., contributing to more comprehensive and impactful research projects.
biobank|CQE is maintained by the BIOMOL research group, and it is housed in the Chemical Biology Laboratory in the Chemistry building at Técnico Alameda.
Coordination & Scientific Commission: Pedro Pinheiro, Gonçalo Justino, Matilde Marques
Curation Team: Cátia Marques, Pedro Rosado
