IMIM (Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute) is a research centre that belongs to Parc de Salut Mar (PSMAR), a public institution responsible for several health care facilities in the Barcelona area, including two general hospitals, an institute of psychiatry, an institute of geriatrics, various outpatient facilities dedicated to mental health, addictions, primary care and family planning, and teaching facilities in agreement with Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). IMIM also benefits from a strategic location at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), one of the largest biomedical clusters in the South of Europe.

IMIM’s research is focused on scientific research into Biomedicine and Health Science fields, as well as on training of highly qualified researchers in these fields. 700 professionals develop research activities in the framework of IMIM, of which 190 are principal investigators distributed in 56 research groups integrated into the five multi-disciplinary research programmes: Cancer, Epidemiology and Public Health, Cardiovascular and Inflammatory Processes, Biomedical Informatics, and Neurosciences.
