Cardiovascular R&D Unit

The Cardiovascular R&D Unit (UnIC) was created in 1994 to fill a gap in the translational research of cardiovascular diseases. At the moment, the Centre integrates basic science (Physiology) and clinical departments (Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Cardio-thoracic and Vascular Surgery, Neurology, Pediatrics and Pediatrics Cardiology), assembling investigators from several Departments of the Faculty of Medicine of Porto, from Centro Hospitalar de São João, EPE (CHSJ) among others, accounting 124 researchers, 38 of which are PhD holders. The combination of different basic science and clinical departments allows the implementation of bench to bedside to bench approaches in the study of cardiovascular (CV) diseases, with a significant number of its investigators combining research with clinical activity.

The project had the help of our team in the creative process, and developing the Website through technologies that promote the dissemination of content through effective SEO, as well as the ability to be Responsive on mobile devices.
