Institute of Nuclear Sciences Applied to Health


The Institute of Nuclear Sciences Applied to Health (ICNAS) is an organic research unit at the University of Coimbra, a multidisciplinary nature, whose main objectives are:

  • Develop scientific research, implement new techniques for basic and clinical research in the field of nuclear technologies applied to health and disseminate scientific advances achieved in its intervention area;

  • Provide specialized health services in the field of biomedical applications of radiation;

  • Promote interdisciplinarity, exploring the possible links between the scientific fields involved in its activity;

  • Develop at national and international cooperation between research organizations, education and health care in the areas of science that is dedicated.

The ICNAS is a complete unit of Nuclear Medicine, Clinical encompassing a unit equipped with 4 Gamma Cameras and PET / CT and even a production unit consisting Laboratory Cyclotron and Radiopharmacy.

The ICNAS is headquartered in its own building located on Campus III - Pole of Health Sciences, University of Coimbra. It is a building purpose built, modern architecture and endowed with characteristics appropriate to the activity which develops, particularly with regard to radiological protection.

The transfer of existing Laboratory of Nuclear Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine of Coimbra, for the new facility took place on 2 February 2009.

The official inauguration of the building ICNAS occurred on April 16, attended by the President of the Republic His Excellency Prof.. Aníbal Cavaco Silva.

Animal testing is largely misleading, a waste

There's really not a conflict. Animal results are largely misleading and fruitless for medical research purposes.
"What good does it do you to test something (a vaccine) in a monkey? You find five or six years from now that it works in the monkey, and then you test it in humans and you realize that humans behave totally differently from monkeys, so you've wasted five years."

An article in Rolling Stone (October 20, 1994) by Adam Miller called J. Philippe Rushton a 'professor of hate,' someone who 'takes money from an organization with a terrible past' (the Pioneer Fund, a foundation said to have an orientation toward eugenics). He is accused of being 'obsessed with intelligence and genetics' to the point of having 'racist' attitudes by Jeffrey Rosen and Charles Lane in The New Republic symposium on IQ (October 31, 1994). They single out Rushton for linking ethnocentricism to genetic factors; this in turn subjects him to the broad brush of being, along with Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray, 'Neo-Nazis' Newsweek (October 24, 1994). In The Chronicle of Higher Education (October 26, 1994) critiquing Herrnstein and Murray's The Bell Curve it is clear...
