Our Research Division oversees all scientific activities of the foundation, analyses the scientific market, elaborates innovative ideas, manages research projects and controls scientific processes to deliver high-quality multidisciplinary studies. Several departments are part of this division. Collaboration is the key word both within the foundation’s departments and with external partners such as universities and private institutions to seek for scientific innovation.
The Division aims to plan, conduct, publish high quality research ranging from lab research to clinical-based research. Within the research division, the translational research team makes the effort to correlate lab findings with clinical-based results. In general, this committee is composed by research fellows, PhD, clinical-research fellow and all those professionals who will to be involved in research
Constantly improving quality, processes and effectiveness of osteopathic research to deliver better heath care services and enhance quality of education.
