IDIBAPS: Research for the future
Implication in great projects
I also wish to underscore the growing implication of this Institute in major national and international projects. The participation of the IDIBAPS in the Networked Biomedical Research Centres (Centros de Investigación Biomédica en Red, CIBERs), promoted by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, is very notorious. In this context, we are leaders of the CIBER on liver and digestive diseases (CIBERehd), the CIBER on respiratory diseases (CIBERes) and the CIBER on diabetes and related metabolic disorders (CIBERdem). We continue to participate in and lead projects of the Cooperative Research Thematic Networks (Redes Temáticas de Investigación Cooperativa, RETICs), likewise promoted by the Ministry, and the number of projects financed by the European Commission in which we take part also continues to grow day by day.
All considered, we have nothing but admiration for the professionals who allow the Institute to advance, allowing us to view the future with optimism. We have achieved many things, but we can most certainly achieve many more. We have human potential, institutional and economical support, and the desire to continue moving forward.
Director of the IDIBAPS
