Meet our scientists
From the Director Joan J. Guinovart "Innovative approaches, thinking big, and collaboration are the ethos at IRB Barcelona, and they are the key to our success."
Welcome to IRB Barcelona’s 2012 annual report, which once again this year is presented completely online. Through the stories, videos, photos and interactive features that appear in these pages, we hope to paint a picture of how we have spent the year successfully delivering on our missions of conducting internationally recognized multidisciplinary research at the forefront of biomedicine, training and inspiring scientists at all stages of their careers, driving innovation through active technology transfer to the benefit of society, and creating an open dialogue with the public about an area of science with enormous potential to touch their lives.
Innovative approaches, thinking big, and collaboration are the ethos at IRB Barcelona, and they are the key to our success. These characteristics are reflected in the quality of our science, our students, the translation of our researchers’ ideas into real benefits for society, and how we communicate this to you. They permeate everything we do.
We invite you to come inside and explore our research groups, learn about some of our exciting discoveries, and meet some of the faces behind the science at IRB Barcelona. Enjoy!
Joan J. Guinovart Director, IRB Barcelona
