The advancements of biomedicine depend on translational research in health. They are determined by the possibility of offering multidisciplinary lines of research in which basic and clinical researchers collaborate and which must include and promote technological advancements. The principal objective of this programme is, through the training of physicians, to promote quality research in biomedicine and public health in order to improve quality of life and life expectancy as well as to increase the overall well-being and financial stability of society.
The programme comprises teams of researchers with a long tradition of collaborative work with national and international groups.
