Foundation: 1975

Mission: At the CBMSO we focus our research on the study of the molecular bases of human pathologies with the ultimate goal of providing the knowledge necessary for the design of therapies, procedures and diagnostic methods that help improve the quality and life expectancy of the population. Our research in molecular biomedicine is based on two realities: -the need to reduce the social impact of the most disabling diseases. -the need to understand the molecular mechanisms of diseases in order to translate them into biomedical applications.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
