It is intended to study the normal anatomy of these organs and tissues and their anatomic variations, thus allowing for a comparison between healthy and unhealthy individuals. With this, we intent to provide deeper insights into the abdomen's normal anatomy and its anatomic variation through new imaging technologies. Additionally, this line of research will determine the diagnostic imaging accuracy of gastrointestinal tract and urinary system diseases. We are intent on reaching an earlier and more precise diagnosis of the diseases of adult and elderly patients, thus increasing their survival. It has been designed to produce researchers and professors who want to work within this line of research responsible for studying the most common diseases in our population.
Clinical Epidemiology This area of concentration is intended to develop research in clinical epidemiology focusing on its methodological and clinical aspects. This line of research intends to encourage the development of research projects that contribute to the progress in identification, intervention and promotion of determinants of the health-disease process in human population.
Functional and Molecular Image of the Body Functional imaging is the state-of-the-art in diagnostic imaging. Magnetic Resonance made a giant leap in that direction through the employment of ultra-rapid acquisition techniques, which have enabled the measurement of variations in oxygen consumption levels arising from the BOLD effect and an estimation of the cellularity of tissues through the diffusion technique. PET has enabled Nuclear Medicine to measure the level of consumption of glucose in the tissue, by making use of ionizing radiation. It is largely employed in the investigation of tumors and metastasis, which have naturally increased the consumption of glucose due to a larger metabolic level. More recently, the Dynamic PET has enabled the assessment of the consumption of glucose over time and the measurement of the most active regions more precisely.
Epidemiology and Environmental Health This course is intended to encourage the development of research into the area of epidemiology and environmental health with an eye to the methodological and clinical aspects. This line of research seeks to encourage the development of research projects that contribute to the advancement of the identification, intervention and promotion of the determinants of the health-disease process in human population.
Technological Innovations in the Health Area Curently, we are seeing worldwide the fast development of technologies, proceedings and medicines focus at the most effective treatment of diseases and the restoration of health. This accelerated step with which medical knowledge progresses makes it necessary to create a new mentality in medical training, stimulating curiosity, the active search for knowledge and constant updating. The number and complexity of the scientific processes that lead to this evolution are also worthy of attention, both due to the need for training to understand them, as well as the work opportunity they represent for doctors in general.
Phenomenology and Hermeneutics This line of research is intended to analyze the classical theories of knowledge under the perspective of the philosophers of phenomenology, which has been the norm in Europe for almost a century and has representatives all over the world.
Philosophy in the Middle Ages This line of research addresses philosophers of the Middle Ages.

Neurotoxic activity of ureases and derived peptides This line of research will address the neurotoxic and pro-inflammatory activities of ureases of different organisms. It will also address the methodologies of study of neurotoxicity relying on the use of insects-models. As well as this, it will look at ureases as virulence factors for pathogenic microorganisms, especially bacteria Helicobacter pylori and Proteus mirabilis and Cryptococcu yeasts.
Neuroinflammation/Multiple Sclerosis/ neuromyelitis optica The inflammation resulting from neurological diseases may be primarily involved with the physiopathology of immunomediated diseases of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, ADEM - acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, autoimmune encephalitis and some neurological complications resulting directly or indirectly from viral or bacterial infections (e.g. meningoencephalitis). In other diseases, the inflammation plays a major role, but less clear than it is in strokes and in degenerative diseases of the central nervous system. The deregulation in the immune system, be it either temporary or permanent, may lead to injuries in the brain, bone marrow and peripheral nerves that cause permanent neuronal damage with the risk of aftereffects and permanent incapacity. By relying on advanced methods in molecular biology associated with clinical and imaging assessment (magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine), we have conducted research that is intended to understand the intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms that lead to an increase of pro-inflammatory substances such as cytokines, chemokines, the production of autoantibodies, complement system activation, proliferation / maturation of autoreactive lymphocytes T and B, microglial activation and the alteration of the blood-brain barrier. Besides, we have conducted research for the identification of specific biomarkers for each disease which may assist in the establishment of better diagnosis/prognosis and in experimental animal models for the study of physiopathology and innovative therapeutic interventions.
Epilepsy This line of research will cover clinical and electroencephalographic, pharmacological, neuroimaging and surgical studies in the realm of epilepsy. The direct involvement of São Lucas Hospital with the diagnosis, clinical treatment and epilepsy surgery opens interesting perspectives of investigation, seeking diagnostic refinement, new treatment options and the correlations of epileptic syndromes with structural alterations of the brain.
The central nervous system (CNS) formation stages can be considered a great concert with the regency of different signaling molecules that trigger a cascade of dependent and complementary processes until the formation of all CNS structures as well as their different functionalities. The human brain is a puzzle of more than 100 billion pieces that must be accurately directed to its unique and specific location. The studies of Molecurar Bases of Embryonic Neurogenesis presents a comprehensive view of understanding the CNS, from its embryonic formation to neurogenesis in the adult brain, guiding clinical and pathological situations related to cerebral malformations and new therapeutic alternatives for CNS recovery. The use of molecular techniques as next-generation sequencing (NGS), super arrays, relative expression, genotyping, etc., are used to describe signaling pathways, genesis of pathologies, and application of precision medicine for the treatment of various diseases. The cell reprogramming at the embryonic level through the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) helps to understand embryonic neurogenesis and screening of new drugs for the treatment of alterations during the formation of the central nervous system and its associated pathologies

It examines public security policies and the role of the state in fighting violent crime and guaranteeing human rights. It investigates transformations in labor relations, the emergence of alternative modes of production, distribution and consumption of goods, the trajectory of social movements and organizations and their potential for transforming society.
Diversity, generations and daily life It analyzes contemporary social processes in their interfaces with different manifestations of cultural diversity. It investigates the generational dimension and its relations with public policies and the performance of institutions and social actors with diverse positions. Research intersections between social markers of difference (age/generations, sex/gender, social class/origin, race/ethnicity, nationality) in the configuration of social and cultural processes. Develops research through methodologies such as biographical analysis, ethnography and studies of everyday life.
Political sociology of relations international It studies phenomena that go beyond national borders using the methodological tools of the social sciences. It approximates the theories of International Relations with the approaches mobilized in Sociology, Political Science and Anthropology. Among the topics of interest in the line of research, the following stand out: (a) political activism and transnational social movements, international non-governmental organizations and their interactions with States in a multilevel perspective; (b) international migration in its political, cultural and social aspects; (c) political institutions and processes, including those related to democracy, the defense of human rights, integration and the production of public policies.
