Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA)

The Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA) is the University of Navarra’s biomedical research institute.

Its close ties with the Schools of Medicine, Science and Pharmacy, and with Clínica Universidad de Navarra enable it to create synergies to make academic knowledge and research on cell and molecular biology available for use in healthcare applications. Its mission is to carry out translational research to a high standard of excellence, based on novel biological knowledge and aimed at finding therapeutic solutions to patients’ needs.

More than 300 Scientifics from 20 different countries research in oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, hepatology, cell therapy and gene therapy.  Since 2012, CIMA is a member of ADItech Technology Corporation of Navarra which aims to boost the innovative potential of Navarra at european and national level.  At the national level, it participates in the Cooperative Research Thematic Networks (RETICs) based on cancer (RTICC) and Cardiovascular Diseases (RECAVA) and it´s present in the Networked Biomedical Research Centers (CIBER) of the Carlos III Health Institute, in the areas of Neuroscience (CIBERNED) and hepatic diseases (CIBEREHD). At the international level, 29 projects have been funded under the 7th Framework Program and 5 under the current H2020 program.

Navarrabiomed – Fundación Miguel Servet

Navarrabiomed is a research center associated to the Health Department of the Navarra Regional Government which has supported and facilitated the research work of public health professionals since 1997 (mainly in the hospital, primary care and public health sectors). The center belongs to the Miguel Servet Foundation which promotes, manages and implements all its research projects.

Its activities are carried out in 24 research groups, formed by a total of 248 professionals, in Neuroscience, Oncology, Large System Pathologies and New Developments, Mental Health, Epidemiological Surveillance, Public Health and Health Services, and technological platforms such as Genomics, Proteomics and Biobank.

The center has recently changed its installations and equipment and now occupies a new building inside the grounds of the Navarra Hospital Complex. Since 2013, the Proteomics and Biobank platforms have carried out their scientific-technological activities at this new location. Furthermore, there are plans to soon incorporate the Genomics Platform, GMP rooms, animal facility and experimental operating room.
