About Us

GenoMed® – Diagnósticos de Medicina Molecular SA, is a spin-off company of the Instituto de Medicina Molecular (iMM) founded in 2004. We are a licensed laboratory for Genetics and Molecular Pathology.

Our team gathers highly qualified personal in genetics and molecular biology with more than 10 years of experience. We also have medical doctors specialised in genetics and pathology, as well as a bioinformatics team.

The exchange of scientific knowledge within one of the largest research centers in Portugal places us at the forefront of the development of genetic tests and other innovative and personalized molecular studies for each person.

Mission

We focus on performing genetic and molecular biology techniques to provide our clients with a diagnosis, prognosis and / or therapeutic guidance in a fast, accurate and personalized way.

Vision

We intend to be the reference molecular genetic company in carrying out diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic guidance tests in Portugal.

It's in our Genes

The importance of genetic testing in the diagnosis of neurological diseases has continued to grow. From neuromuscular diseases to those of movement, including epilepsy and rare vascular diseases, genetic tests have become a fundamental element in the diagnosis and understanding of the clinical expression of diseases of the Central and Peripheral Nervous System.
José Ferro
Director of Neurology Service at HSM - Group Leader at iMM
As a researcher I have found GenoMed to have prompt and effective collaboration, as a clinician GenoMed responds quickly and accurately to my requests, but always a good partner.
Mamede de Carvalho
Full Professor - Director of the Institute of Physiology - Group Leader at iMM
GenoMed, Diagnosis of Molecular Medicine has developed a fundamental collaboration within the Reference Center for Hereditary Diseases of Metabolism (DHM) -adult sector, in order to promote the transfer of scientific knowledge in the field of molecular medicine to clinical practice. The analysis of the clinical exome through NGS sequencing represents an added value in the study and diagnosis of DHM.
Anabela Oliveira
Director of the HSM Central Emergency Service
An effective laboratory, oriented towards modernization and permanent updating, which combines competence with the capacity for dialogue between the laboratory and the clinic; more than a laboratory, an effective interface between genetics and the clinic, facilitating and bringing together two vectors of medicine.
