What we do and our collaborations

At the Monasterio Foundation, research has a multidisciplinary scope and approach: from molecular biology to experimental and clinical medicine, epidemiology and technological innovation in the healthcare process. The various units, in parallel with clinical activities, are actively engaged in research projects on pathophysiology, diagnostics and treatment of pathologies under clinical or diagnostic evaluation.

Research at the Monasterio Foundation is developed across thematic areas in which collaboration with research organisations and universities is often a key element for the success of projects.
In the field of research activities, the Monasterio Foundation has consolidated and productive collaborations with various national and international research organisations, including the CNR Institute of Clinical Physiology and with universities, in particular the University of Pisa, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and Scuola Normale Superiore.

Specialised training is one of the Monasterio Foundation’s vocations and, as part of its collaboration with universities, there are several training activities proposed for students and doctors in specialised training, as well as joint initiatives for the organisation of Master’s degrees and higher education courses.
