Research centres

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.”
