Centre for the Study of Medicine and the Body in the Renaissance
The Centre for the Study of Medicine and the Body in the Renaissance (CSMBR) is an international institute of advanced studies based at theDomus Comeliana in Pisa. The Centre furthers the values of medical humanism and the advancement of human knowledge as particularly related to the Medical Renaissance and to the historical understanding of science throughout its development in Europe for the period 1350-1700.
The Centre is run by a Governing Board and a Scientific Committee that together are responsible for the organisation of scientific events, activities, and grants promoted each year in cooperation with the CSMBR Partner Institutions:
The Centre for the Study of Medicine and the Body in the Renaissance (CSMBR) pursues exclusively scientific and cultural goals and is open to scholars of any nationality, without discrimination of ethnicity, gender, age, political, religious, or sexual orientation.
The CSMBRdoes not seek or promote any political goals; therefore the promotion of any activity or field of studies which is either directly or indirectly related to political aims of any nature (religious, social, economic, sexual, etc.) is structurally incompatible with the very mission of the Centre.
