Infraestructure


CIMA is the only private research institution in Spain that combines solid basic biology science with early preclinical drug development capabilities within a context of clinical patient care. All is oriented to solve unmet medical problems for the benefit of the patient and the society. CIMA has facilities and processes that allow target-based and phenotypic drug discovery and early development of new therapeutic agents, up to the lead optimization stage. Noteworthy are: the collection of biological samples; the animal facilities, which include from knock-out mice to larger species; the genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics unit; the imaging unit, providing services of microscopy, non-invasive image acquisition of laboratory animals and quantitative image analysis. CIMA's strategic linkage with the University Hospital enables and promotes the bidirectional flow of 'bench-to-bed' knowledge… and backwards.
