Research and Innovation
The Champalimaud Clinical Centre (CCC) is a state-of-the-art medical, scientific and technological institution. In this centre, interdisciplinary clinical care is developed alongside applied research activities and advanced medical and technical education programmes. The CCC focuses on personalised medicine, centred on the patient, which allows for higher efficacy levels in disease control leading to longer survival and better quality of life.
The CCC is structured into Multidisciplinary Pathology Units (MPUs). These include, among others, medical oncologists, surgeons, radiotherapists, radiologists, pathologists, geneticists, nuclear medicine specialists, nurses, psycho-oncologists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, and palliative care experts, who meet regularly to define personalised diagnostic and treatment plans adjusted to each individual patient.
There are seven functioning units dedicated to treatment and research on the major types of cancer. These are the Breast Unit, the Lung Unit, the Urology Unit, the Digestive Unit, the Gynaecology Unit, the Haemato-Oncology Unit, and the Dermatology Unit.
The Champalimaud Clinical Centre also includes a Neuropsychiatry Unit that delivers healthcare in this area, functioning as the clinical arm of Champalimaud Research and guaranteeing the translational character of this important area of the Champalimaud Foundation’s research.
Our scientists and health professionals work together to ensure that all the available knowledge and techniques are put at the service of a personalised medical practice of excellence.
