We advance research into pediatric and maternal diseases

The Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu (IRSJD) is a research and innovation center in biomedicine. The IRSJD was created in 2015 through a collaboration agreement between the SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital, the Universitat de Barcelona, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, the Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu and the Fundació de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu.

The mission of Sant Joan de Déu Research Institute (IRSJD) is to carry out research on the health problems faced by paediatric medicine and how these problems affect human development, both in the field of physical and mental health, with the aim of improving the well-being and quality of life.
