The main role of CINBIO is to link various research efforts by bringing together top-class biomedical scientists from many different fields. The major goal of the centre is to establish a space of excellence where researchers can work in a creative and multidisciplinary manner. Scientists have been provided with a specific setting in which they can work, sharing resources, equipment and knowledge, to produce high quality research on biomedicine. We hope that the research developed by our scientists will have an important impact on society, helping to improve our health and quality of life.
