Welcome to IIBB.
The Biomedical Research Institute of Barcelona (IIBB) is a research center of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). It is associated to the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), constituted by the Generalitat of Catalonia, the University of Barcelona and the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona.
The mission of the IIBB is biomedical, translational and multidisciplinary research. Our goal is to transfer advances in basic science into clinical applications. The scientific research carried out in this center has allowed to understand the bases of many human pathologies, driving to the development of new and effective drugs and therapies against them. Its contributions to the treatment and origin of several diseases in different fields of biomedicine are remarkable. On the other hand, the institute has reference technology in the country. The contribution of the IIBB scientists to the advancement of biomedicine is very significant and this has also allowed to disseminate, teach, train scientists, as well as to collaborate and create new companies.
The IIBB is located in the extension of Barcelona, next to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the UB and the Clinical Hospital, and also has laboratories in the Esther Koplowitz Center (CEK), in the Autonomous University of Barcelona, in the Hospital de Sant Pau and a unit associated with the IMIM.
Different researchers of the IIBB participate in Biomedical Network Research Centers (CIBERs) such as CIBERNED, CIBERSAM, CIBEREHD, CIBERESP or CIBERBBN
