Support for environmental research AID 12089


The BioForMoz project (Support for Environmental Research) AID 12089 is funded by the Italian Development Cooperation Agency (AICS) and entrusted to the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Sassari, to collaborate with the Biotechnology Center of the E. Mondlane University of Maputo in Mozambique.

BioForMoz started on July 1, 2021, and focuses on biodiversity conservation, One Health dynamics, and environmental pollution. The project applies molecular biology and immunology techniques to genetically characterize populations (microbiology, plants, animals, and humans) and diagnose diseases.

Our vision and mission include the development of high-level training programs for masters and PhD students. The collaboration between the Mozambican and Italian staff is a strong point of BioForMoz, facilitated by joint committees. Additionally, the project benefits from scientific excellence through a vast network of Italian institutions and the involvement of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, Italy.

One more strong point is the excellent network of lab facilities including molecular genetics labs at the Center of Biotechnology and at Museum of Natural History.

Help us defend Mozambican biodiversity and promote public health.
