The Biomedical Research Institute of Girona (IDIBGI) is one of the leading BUSCA centres in translational research to improve people's health.
Geis defends that "improving knowledge transfer is an effort that goes beyond research centres and universities and involves society and the territory as a whole".
The Catalan Councillor for Research and Universities, Gemma Geis, visited the headquarters of the Biomedical Research Institute of Girona (IDIBGI) at the Martí i Julià Hospital Park in Salt this afternoon. Geis met with the centre's management team, headed by the director Margarita Nadal, and toured the centre's facilities.
The Catalan Councillor, who was accompanied by the General Director of Research, Joan Gómez Pallarès, and the General Director of Knowledge Transfer, Xavier Aldeguer, highlighted the value of the biomedical research carried out at the centre: "The IDIBGI strengthens our conviction that science and innovation are a lever for progress and development throughout the territory". Geis defended that "good research can be carried out, in this case for the benefit of citizens' health, from any part of the country, and Catalonia needs to advance without leaving anyone behind towards the knowledge society to which we all aspire".
The IDIBGI is a BUSCA centre with several areas of research in the cardiovascular and respiratory fields, medical imaging, metabolism and inflammation, neuroscience and mental health, among others. With the aim of doing translational research to improve people's health, the centre promotes biomedical research, scientific and technological knowledge, teaching and training in the life and health sciences.
