The six independent research organisations located in the PRBB form an inter-institutional coalition and are connected to one another via the open-plan layout. They focus on investigation into human health and biomedicine in a building that promotes synergies and collaboration.
IMIM (Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute): “We effectively interconnect basic research with clinical realities at the attached university hospital.”
Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (CEXS) of the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF): “We invest in the education of future top scientists and offer interdisciplinary PhD programs fully in English.”
Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG): “Our challenge is to understand the genomic basis of diseases for the improvement of our quality of life.”
Barcelona Institute of Global Health (Campus Mar, former CREAL): “Our goal is to improve global health and promote health equity through excellence in research and the translation and application of knowledge.”
Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE: CSIC-UPF): “We study the processes and mechanisms that generate biodiversity and try to understand the genetic basis of the difference among species and within species.”
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL Barcelona): “We explore how tissues and organs function and develop, in health and disease.”
