ITQB has presently 62 Laboratories organized into five Research Divisions - Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, Biology, Plant Sciences, and Technology. In many cases the allocation of a particular Laboratory to a Division is an organizational convenience and collaboration between Divisions is strongly encouraged.
The diversity of expertise present at ITQB contributes to the multidisciplinary atmosphere that makes this Institute unique in the country.
Research at ITQB is mainly supported by contracted projects (upon evaluation) with national and international R&D funding agencies such as Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia or the European Commission.
Research developed at ITQB can sometimes create real opportunities for applications either through patent submissions or by the creation of start-up companies. This competence is achieved by ITQB´s association with IBET. IBET is the largest private, non-profit biotechnology research organization in Portugal and its goal is to transfer scientific knowledge to industrial applications.
