The 36 Research Groups at IRBLleida cover all the main aspects of biomedical research, and are arranged in five different Research Areas. All the Research Areas cover aspects ranging from basic to clinical research and have a clear translational component.
Area coordinator: Dr. Eloi Garí Marsol
The cancer area includes research staff trained in different specialties of Medicine and Biology. The common goal is oncology research integrating basic (model organisms), translational, and clinical research (trials).
Chronic diseases, Surgery and Health Care
Area: Chronic diseases, Surgery and Health Care
Area coordinator: Dr. José Manuel Valdivielso Revilla
The area contains 6 groups dedicated to determining the pathophysiological mechanisms of vascular, renal, metabolic and pulmonary diseases. In addition, research is being conducted on new surgical methods and strategies to promote healthy aging.
Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases and Public Health
Area: Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases and Public Health
Area coordinator: Dr. Oriol Yuguero Torres
In this area we want to respond to epidemiological challenges with clinical and basic researchers. We combine our research to see the impact on public health and the environment around us of all the pathologies we attend in our care centers.
Area coordinator: Dra. Rosa Maria Soler Tatché
Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary area that studies the nervous system in its structure, function, development and pathology. IRBLleida groups investigate neurological and psychiatric diseases addressing molecular, cellular and clinical aspects.
Nutrition, Metabolism and Oxidative Stress
Area: Nutrition, Metabolism and Oxidative Stress
Area coordinator: Dr. Joaquim Ros Salvador
We study the ageing process, myocardial differentiation, neurodegenerative diseases and cell signalling in relation to oxidative stress in various cellular, animal and human models, using experimental and theoretical methods.
