These facilities carry out research focused on IMIBIC’s five scientific programmes: active ageing and frailty; nutrition, endocrine and metabolic diseases; infectious, immunological diseases and organ transplants; cancer and chronic and inflammatory diseases such as cardiovascular or kidney diseases.
The construction work began in 2011 and the installation of the equipment was completed during 2014.
