Please note: The Centro de Investigação Médica (Center for Medical Research) belongs to the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto. However the entrance for the Centro de Investigação Médica is different from the classic entrance of the Faculty of Medicine. When you enter you will find a large hall and the auditorium will be by your left side.
