Two decades of biomedical and health research

The IMIM–Hospital del Mar is a public centre, part of the Mar Health Park, which for the last 209 years has been dedicated to scientific research in the field of biomedicine and the health sciences as well as training qualified researchers in these areas. The centre is associated with Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), and since October 2006 it has been located in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB).

It comprises over 350 people, between contracted personnel and collaborators, with a mix of researchers from the IMIM and clinical researchers from other Mar Health Park centres.

The research it carries out is structured into five multidisciplinary programmes: cancer; epidemiology and public health; inflammatory and cardiovascular processes; biomedical IT and neuropsychopharamcology.
