The Research in Inflammatory and Cardiovascular Disorders Program combines the effort, knowledge and know-how of the 40 investigators and more than 100 technicians and support personnel of 14 research groups committed to the expansion of the knowledge on the physio-pathological, inflammatory and genetic mechanisms of cardiovascular, respiratory, bone and other acute and chronic disorders, their treatment and management.
Addressing biomedical key scientific questions stemming from bedside will be the highest priority of the members of the program who are deeply multidisciplinary in nature in their joint venture. This approach should lead to translational research that may be applied to medical care, which in turn should guarantee a return in development and patenting. Several Groups have already established cross-link collaboration with other Research Groups at IMIM (Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute) in other Research Programs. All member groups will take advantage of their relationships with drug and technology industries to contribute to biomedical development of our society.
Inflammatory and cardiovascular disorders program is constituted by fifteen groups:
Most of the researcher members of the Program are involved in teaching and training students, young investigators, and medical doctors. Investigation and PhD degree achievement will be promoted among young clinicians, and international calls for research training positions and investigator exchange will be stimulated in the our program.
