The center

CIC bioGUNE (Center for Cooperative Research in Biosciences), a non-profit biomedical research organization, founded in 2002 at the initiative of the Department of Industry of the Basque Government, opened its research facilities at the Technology Park of Bizkaia in January 2005. Since then, CIC bioGUNE has been playing a strong role in advancing biomedical research and technological innovation in the Basque Country. To support the research activities of The Center's scientists and students CIC bioGUNE made an investment of more than 35 million € in state-of-the-art research infrastructure - in genomics, gene silencing, proteomics, metabolomics, NMR, electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and computer and animal facilities, among others. Every year, The Center commits more than 5.5 million € to research and dedicates 450 thousand € to Ph.D. training. It employs 22 research group leaders, more than 85 postdocs, technicians and engineers, and provides training opportunities to over twenty Ph.D. students each year.

The Center for Biomedical Research Network Consortium, M.P, (CIBER), more specifically, its Cancer Thematic Area (CIBERONC) was created at the beginning of 2017 and is made up of 50 research groups belonging to 27 institutions consortiums among hospitals, universities and research centers. The groups work together in six major Research Programs: Colon and digestive tract cancer; Breast cancer; Lung and respiratory tract cancer; Hematologic tumors; Tumors of low prevalence; and Molecular mechanisms of tumor progression.
