The Annual Report provides an overview of the activities and developments that have taken place within the IRB Barcelona research community during the year. This new online version combines research summaries, facts and figures, and video highlights to provide a snapshot of life and research at IRB Barcelona.
This year has marked a transition for IRB Barcelona. It has been a year in which Joan Guinovart has passed the directorship to me—a position that I am honoured to hold.
The annual report reflects on IRB Barcelona’s achievements and it also provides an opportunity for me to acknowledge Joan´s leadership over the years. During this time, we have produced significant scientific results and made important institutional accomplishments. However, I believe that the most relevant achievement has been the consolidation of such an outstanding community. This truly devoted group of people has made IRB Barcelona what it is today, namely a model of excellence in fundamental biomedical research.
