scientific programs

The scientific activity undertaken at the Center is divided into four programs which in turn, comprise our various research groups

The Molecular Basis of Human Disease program studies the causes and mechanisms driving various human diseases, with a special emphasis on rare, metabolic, and cancerous diseases. The ultimate goal of the program is to acquire knowledge that will facilitate and encourage progress in the diagnosis of these diseases and help the development of specific therapeutic strategies to treat them.

The Neuroscience program performs basic and translational research into the mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological (cognitive, motor, functional, and sleep-related) impairment in different pathological contexts.

This program aims to translate and deliver novel therapies into clinical practice. Their advanced computational skills allow them to manage multiple data streams from several different omic techniques to provide invaluable insights to colleagues in varied disciplines.

The objective of the Advanced Therapies program is to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to tackle high-impact public health problems by applying and combining both cellular therapy and pharmacological approaches, including high-throughput systems and nanomedicine.
