GSD is proud to be home to 3 outstanding research hospitals, Ospedale San Raffaele, Policlinico San Donato, and Ospedale Galeazzi - Sant'Ambrogio, that conduct various studies and clinical trials in their fields of expertise.

Just at San Raffaele, our largest facility for research and care, more than 1,200 researchers work in over 100 laboratories, distributed on a surface of 130.000 square meters of high-tech facilities. Half of these researchers are physicians scientists, working side by side in the labs with biologists, chemists and biotechnologists, but also taking care of patients in the hospital departments. Their presence furtherly guarantees that clinical needs are well represented in basic research and, at the same time, that the most advanced knowledge on diseases biology is informing the clinical practice.
