Infrastructure: 

 

PPGFQM  faculty and students are distributed in four units: two in the Center for Health Sciences (Centro de Ciências da Saúde - CCS), namely: i. Institute of Biomedical Sciences and ii. Institute of Research on Natural Products; and other two in Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz - FIOCRUZ). PPGFQM faculty coordinates each research lab using the best of their infrastructure to develop the student’s thesis and dissertation research projects under ideal conditions. PPGFQM has multipurpose units with medium and large sized lab equipment that allows transversal projects to be conducted.
