Pushing forward the boundaries of biomedical research
The Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) is a first-class pure research centre whose mission is to make groundbreaking advances in biomedicine. To achieve this aim, the Institute adopts a unique multidisciplinary approach that blends ideas from the three fields of biology, chemistry and the computational sciences.
The Institute aims to promote cutting-edge research in biomedicine, to foster cooperation with local, national and international organisations and research institutes, to provide high-level training in the biomedical sciences to staff, students and visitors, and to foster innovation, technology transfer and open dialogue with society through conferences and educational activities. The Institute is currently working on five research programmes: cellular and developmental biology, structural and computational biology, molecular medicine, oncology, and molecular pharmacology and chemistry.
