Informações gerais sobre propriedade intelectual

At present, 6 graduate programs and around 300 topics of research occupy 290 teachers at the Institute of Biological Sciences (ICB), 90% of whom holding doctoral, master’s or post-baccalaureate degrees.
The laboratories of the Institute’s 10 departments have been responsible for internationally acclaimed research in Biology, some of them being considered national standards, such as the Center of Electronic Microscopy. It is worth pointing out the recent development, at ICB, of a new simple non-radioactive methodology for the study of DNA impressions and the American visceral leishmaniasis vaccine.
Among the ICB topics of research responsible for the largest number of publications are those related to the development of new vaccines and medications – Biochemistry, Immunology, and Microbiology – to Genetics and to Ecology. The Unit also makes important contributions to Botany, Zoology, Morphology, and Parasitology.

To assist researchers and teachers, ICB has four laboratory animal facilities with hundreds of guinea pigs kept in accordance to international principles of animal experimentation. UFMG’s laboratory animal facility is considered one of the best equipped in the country.
