The I3S consortium, headed by the UPorto, brings together four institutions and researchers from several schools of the UPorto. Collaboration between all institutions has been extensive over many years.

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. Six schools of the UPorto (FMUP, ICBAS, FMDUP, FCUP, FEUP and FFUP) and three hospitals (CH S João, CH Porto and IPO) also contribute to the activities of I3S. This 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. In a new building (to be completed in 2015) the I3S will provide a vibrant environment for new scientific discoveries and translation into improvements in health care. The I3S focuses on three Integrative Programs: Cancer, Host Response and Interaction, and Neurobiology and Neurologic Disease.
