With just over two years after the creation of 2CA-Braga, we are pleased to launch our first newsletter, which allows you to take stock of the work done. During this time the foundations of a work program with a positive impact were laid. 2CA-Braga defined its management system, ensured working processes and tools, and established a set of synergistic relationships with dozens of institutional partners. We are aware of the challenges we still have to face, but we consider the consolidation of excellence in research to be a top priority. We want, with the participation of all, to find models that will enhance clinical and translational research for health professionals, guaranteeing the highest international standards of ethics, quality and excellence.
