Municipal Institute for Medical Research

Over the last 20 years, the Municipal Institute for Medical Research (IMIM-Hospital del Mar), a subsidiary of the Municipal Institute for Health Care (IMAS), has developed a competitive research programme, and trained highly qualified research personnel in the fields of biomedicine and health sciences. The centre is run by Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), and since October 2006, has been located in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB).

Between the hired personnel and the contributors, the centre is made up of over 350 people, including IMIM researchers and clinical researchers from IMAS centres, particularly from the Hospital del Mar, the Hospital de la Esperanza and the Centro Fórum. An important part of its budget comes from external competitive financing, which are managed by the IMIM Foundation

Our research is categorised into five multidisciplinary programmes, organised around the following themes:

The scientific production generated as a result of this research includes nearly 400 annual publications in international journals listed in the Science Citation Index (SCI) and the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), and some 200 in nationwide journals. This scientific production situates IMIM-Hospital del Mar in eighth position in the ranking of centres with the highest scientific production in biomedicine in Spain, and in fourth position in Catalonia. Additionally, the IMIM-Hospital del Mar is the Spanish healthcare research centre that publishes the largest proportion of work with international collaborations.
