The distribution of research staff in the different research areas, as well as the research interactions, are depicted in the following figure.

Research profile of the Department. The faculty members’ research focus on Health (blue outer ring) and Agri-food & Environment (green outer ring). The research activity of each axis is further analyzed (inner ring). Percentages correspond to the number of faculty members and dashed lines show the research interactions. Besides basic research, the Department develops new biotechnological applications and novel diagnostic tools.
