transfer INCLIVA has participated in the generation of 11 patent requests since 2015.


Our research is articulated around 4 priority research pillars led by well-rewarded researchers: oncology, cardiovascular, metabolism and organ damage and reproductive medicine. Aiming at adopting a translational perspective, this 4 pillar are implemented in 7 scientific areas, each of them oriented to a specific disease: overweight and vascular and renal risk; myocardial ischemic damage; rare diseases; neurological impairment; translational oncology; reproductive medicine and aging.
