LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR

Committed to health research

This year, we have made major discoveries about diseases like cancer and fatty liver, and about the Epstein-Barr virus. Our research groups have published more than 160 articles in journals such as Nature, Cell and Nature Genetics.

Committed to our people

None of this would have been possible without our brilliant team; the greatest asset of IRB Barcelona.

Committed to society

We firmly believe in the importance of citizen engagement in science and of our contributions to the smooth running of the society in which we live. This year, we have promoted a wide range of scientific dissemination activities, launched the Metastasis Challenge, approved the new IRB Barcelona Code of Conduct and started the Caliper project for gender equality.
