IRB Barcelona is home to nearly 450 research, technical and support staff from 35 countries who share the common goal of contributing to the advancement of the biomedical sciences through investigator–driven research, and improving quality of life by applying advances in this field.

The convergence of biology, chemistry, and structural and computational biology is unique at IRB Barcelona and opens a strategic window to gain insight into basic molecular processes in health and disease.

Research is conducted by 23 groups organized into 5 interdisciplinary programmes. Each programme includes a diverse faculty of researchers with overlapping scientific interests. The research areas have been structured to be highly interactive, fostering multidisciplinarity by combining modern molecular biology, classical genetics, biochemistry, structural biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, advanced microscopy, and genomic and proteomic approaches.

Our Board of Trustees comprises members of the Catalan Government (from the Department of Economy and Competitivity and the Department of Health), the University of Barcelona, a representative from the BBVA Foundation as well as internationally renowned scientists.
