Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This project aimed at investigating the efficacy of an innovative stress management program for health professionals using both psychophysiological and psychosocial indicators. In phase 1, the GHQ-12 was given to all the 1500 health professionals from a central hospital in the northern region of Portugal as a general stress diagnosis. In Phase 2, the professionals with high scores on the GHQ-12 were offered an in depth
stress diagnosis consisting of psychosocial, clinical and psychophysiological measures; 86 professionals completed this evaluation. In Phase 3, a Stress Management Intervention was offered to the stressed subjects, with random assignment to experimental and control conditions. The Experimental group had a 8-session group intervention with evaluation times at Pre-test, Post-test, and at a 2 month follow up. The general stress diagnosis (Phase 1) results on 705 health professionals show a prevalence of stress superior to those reported in the international literature. Professional characteristics were more important than demographic aspects in predicting stress. Phase 2 intended to answer two questions: 1. What is the relationship between self-report and objective indicators of stress? 2. What is the relative importance of psychosocial variables in predicting self-report and objective indicators of stress? The results indicate differential associations between negative emotional responses to stress and cardiovascular activation in an induced stress situation (e.g. anger and guilt). They also suggest that more proximal self-reports (e.g. Subject Units of Distress) are closely related with Skin Conductance Levels. Significant correlations were found between Cortisol and Diastolic Blood Pressure, illustrating the relationship between endocrine and cardiovascular systems in response to stress. In general, the psychosocial variables were not significant predictors for objective and clinical indicators of stress, but predicted subjective self-report (Question2). Some exceptions were: more stable psychosocial variables, such as social support and coping resources are related to less complex cardiovascular responses, such as heart rate; psychosocial variables predicted Skin Conductance Level. In terms of the subjective self-report of stress, results show that social support, coping style and intensity of job demands are related to self-reported stress responses such as Denial, Pressure, Anxiety, Depression, Guilt, Anger and Loss of Control. In Phase 3, the stress management intervention was given to the Experimental Group (n= 21), compared to a Control Group (n=17). Although tentative, the data points to the effectiveness of the intervention in terms of diminishing physiological stress reactivity, negative emotional responses to stress and in increasing social support, a crucial stress coping mechanism; Changes were maintained over the 2-month follow-up.
