Core Facilities & Services

Scientists at IRB Barcelona are supported by an extensive range of common core facilities that provide state-of-the-art technologies and scientific services. These facilities are a key asset for our research, allowing the Institute to obtain outstanding results. They are designed to incorporate the most novel technologies available and provide them to our researchers in the shortest time possible.

Interdisciplinary initiatives

IRB Barcelona's partnerships, with organisations in areas of mutual interest and expertise, aim to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge, resources and technologies so critical to advancing the field of biomedicine
