The Biological Research Center (Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas - CIB) is one of the largest and most prestigious centres of the Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas - CSIC). The CIB is a multidisciplinary institute integrating an array of disciplines in structural and cellular biology, biomedicine, biotechnology, agriculture, environmental sciences, and chemistry, which makes it unique among other CSIC research institutes.

The principal goals of the CIB are: high quality research in basic biological sciences and the provision of knowledge-based solutions to biology-related problems affecting society.  Our achievements include the design of new therapeutic approaches, vaccines, biological tests and procedures for industrial development.  These and other achievements are facilitated by the quality and diversity of our research groups, the high standards of our technical and administrative staff, and the broad range of technologies provided by our specialized support facilities.

The CIB is engaged in being one of the flagship biocenters of the CSIC and beyond, to become a paradigm of modern Integrative Biology.
