Institute presentation

Fondazione Centro San Raffaele (FCSR) is a non-profit entity whose mission is the enhancement of basic, translational and clinical research, the studies and the cultural exchanges in the field of biomedical sciences and the health management. Specific aims of FCSR are to expand the knowledge on the biology of diseases, to improve diagnostic techniques, to develop innovative therapeutic protocols and to advance health services. FCSR has developed, through a master agreement, a close and actual cooperation with IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital (OSR), one of the leading and outstanding scientific research institute in Italy. Thanks to the above mentioned master agreement Special Clause 10 has been recognised by the European Commission and can be applied to FP7 Grant Agreement. The master agreement between the Foundation and the IRCCS San Raffaele Hospital in fact provides the framework for the cooperation between the two institutions, with the goal of translating research results into medical practice.

OSR is a private Hospital, recognized by the Italian Ministry of Health as a Research Institute (IRCCS). It comprises both a highly specialized and qualified hospital with 1373 beds. The premises host the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University which provides specialized post graduate courses, medical specialties and international PhD programs.

OSR performs cutting-edge science and advances the knowledge of human diseases and novel therapies with the vision of translational research. It  conducts basic, translational and clinical research by interacting with one or more Clinical Departments. OSR can count on 12 Clinical Departments, 6 Research Divisions and 2 Research Centers.
