Areas of Concentration - Surgical Sciences

1. Clinical/Surgical Applied Research (PCCA)


This area is characterized by multidisciplinary research lines related to surgical applicability and targeted to health assistance. It involves groups from the basic area and various research laboratories and units located in the CCS - Centro de Ciências da Saúde [Health Sciences Center], in the Hospital Universitário Clementino Fraga Filho [Clementino Fraga Filho University Hospital] and in the Hospital Moncorvo Filho [Moncorvo Filho Hospital].

The professors work in education and in research activities and supervise Undergraduate and Graduate stricto sensu students. 

There is an interface of various projects with the Experimental Surgery area, which integrates bases within the scope of Surgery, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Pathology and Technological Innovation. 


2. Experimental Surgery (CE)


This area of concentration orients its activities towards the Experimental Surgery Center of the Surgery Department of the Faculty of Medicine of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Its priority is the development of research projects, under scientific bases of which underlie clinical and surgical applicabilities. 

The professors who are part of the Experimental Surgery research groups (physicians, veterinarians, pharmacologists and biomedical engineers) work in the Graduate and in the Undergraduate Courses, oriented towards research and educational activities. 

Stricto sensu Graduate and Undergraduate students participate in it, along with scholarships and non-scholarships from the Scientific Initiation Program, and in the multiple healthcare units of the UFRJ.

The multidisciplinary interface of the researches brings together various laboratories:

– the Multidisciplinary Laboratory of the Clementino Fraga Filho University Hospital, the Ultrasound Laboratory of the Biomedical Engineering Program of the COPPE, the Basic Pharmacology Laboratory of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the Health Sciences Center, the Pulmonary Research Laboratory of the Carlos Chagas Filho Biophysics Institute - IBCCF and the Stress Factors Research Institute of the Chemistry Institute of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
