The Instituto de Saúde Ambiental (ISAMB) is part of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon (FMUL) and its main goal is to explore the impact of the environmental health.

Founded in 2011 by Professor José Pereira Miguel, ISAMB is a research unit recognized by the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT), which through the search for new approaches and methodologies is meant to raise awareness for the health promotion.

Our team of researchers is actually coordinated by Professor António Vaz Carneiro (Director) and has specialized professionals in several areas of science, such as medicine, biology, sociology, psychology, communication, chemistry, mathematics, nutrition and pharmacology. This multidisciplinary character provides to ISAMB the recognition as reference research centre in the environmental health.
