CIC bioGUNE is a biomedical research center focused on Biochemical, Cellular and Molecular Biology. Our cutting-edge scientific activity concentrates on discover the molecular bases and mechanisms of disease to create new diagnostic methods and promotes development of advanced therapies. The activity explores four main biomedical research themes like Cancer, Metabolic Disease, Rare Diseases and Infectious Disease organized in two research programmes "Metabolism and Cell Signaling in Disease" and "Molecular Recognition and Host-Pathogen Interactions".

Metabolism Diseases
Rare Diseases
Infectious Diseases

Research Programmes
Metabolism & Cell Signaling in Disease






Molecular Recognition & Host-Pathogen Interactions




Membrane remodelling

Animal and plant viruses

With our collaborative philosophy we engage in multidisciplinary research collaborations with in-house, national and international colleagues and technology experts. The center is impinged in a heterogeneous network of Academic and Clinical Entities, Research and Technology Centers and the vibrant Biotech and Pharma ecosystem.

Our mission is to deliver Excellent Research, which allow us to receive 6 European Research Council Grants (H2020 Strategy/ERCfunded projects) so far and to translate the knowledge generated to make a tangible impact for society via industrial collaborations (Innovation and Industry-> Industrial partnership and collaborations).

The scientific activity is supported by cutting-edge infrastructures and technologies platforms, which allow to compete with the main European research institutes, including advanced equipment for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) now also recognized as ICTS, electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction, a facility for monoclonal antibody production, as well as different core technology platforms where genomes, proteomes and metabolomes can be analyzed.
