Annual resource application plan for supporting institutional research infrastructure (ICB-USP 2018-2019)

Abstract

The Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the University of São Paulo has a mission for conducting basic, applied and clinical research in the health field, as well as in innovation and biotechnology. The consolidation of this mission is represented by the extensive scientific production of our community in conjunction with the training and continued training of personnel associated with research activity at all levels, from pre-scientific initiation to post-doctorate. Our Institution is responsible for a considerable portion of the intellectual / scientific production at the University of São Paulo, maintaining scientific collaboration and innovation agreements with public and private institutions, both national and international. The extension of our research activity and its dissemination requires continuous support to our facilities and the maintenance of common spaces and equipment. We work in collaboration, thereby sharing equipment, laboratory spaces and basic infrastructure, which ensures frank interaction between researchers and rationalization in the use of available resources. Therefore, this proposal intends to meet the needs of our Unit, considering the multiuser spaces, the facilities of specific techniques used by the whole community, as well as the animal facilities, ensuring the basic operating conditions for continuity and expansion of the research conducted here. We propose the joint use of resources referring to the base years of 2018 and 2019, in order to make a large-scale project (the readjustment of the electrical infrastructure for research) viable, without giving up smaller, but no less important initiatives.
