The i3S Association merges three institutes and researchers from several schools of the University of Porto (UPorto), thus consolidating an extensive collaboration between all institutions spanning many years.
Despite the existence of an established critical mass studying Infection and Immunity at i3S, our research profile and visibility are modest at an international level.
