Commitment to biomedical and health research

The IISPV aims to identify and promote the major research areas in the biomedical field in El Camp de Tarragona and Les Terres de l’Ebre, strengthening close ties between epidemiological, clinical, translational and basic research and research into health services.

The institute is modelled as an in-network centre, which strives for efficiency in the use of resources and efficacy in the results obtained. The institute’s centre gathers together the research of the institutions it comprises (hospitals, universities and primary healthcare) and is a key structure for the development of the integrated biomedical research model.

The main lines of research focus on nutrition and metabolism; oncology and haematology; neuroscience and mental health; and health and the environment.
