LYSOCIL: Excel in Rare Diseases’ Research: Focus on LYSOsomal Disorders and CILiopathies is a Twinning Project led by NOVA Medical School (NMS) that aims to strengthen the research and innovation capacity of the Chronic Diseases Research Center (CEDOC-NMS|FCM), in research in rare diseases, helping it to become a national and internationally-recognized Centre of Excellence in Chronic rare diseases research and innovation.

For this project, CEDOC-NMS|FCM partnered up with two internationally-leading institutions, Münster University (WWU), a German Center with a strong research profile in basic, clinical and translational medicine connected to rare diseases, and the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM), the leading Italian research center dedicated to understanding the molecular mechanisms behind rare genetic diseases.

This partnership will boost the multidisciplinary knowledge and experience, as well as research and training practices and widen the collaborative networks to step up the research excellence of the involved partners.
