Navarre inaugurates its big move into biomedical research

20.09.2004


The new Centre for Applied Medicine Research (CIMA) will be officially opened at the University of Navarre (Universidad de Navarra).



More than 15,000 square metres on four floors will be given over to investigative work – both basic and clinical – by some 350 biologists, doctors, pharmacologists and technicians. Those responsible for the project wished to direct their efforts in four areas of research involving 90 per cent of deaths in the West. The CIMA scientists will work within the fields of cancer research, cardiovascular physiopathology, neurosciences and, finally, gene therapy hepatology.

The clinical aims of the work is undisputed – involved in the project are the faculties of Medicine, Pharmacy and Science at the Clínica Universitaria de Navarra (the Navarre University Hospital), and the Centre of Research into Applied Pharmacobiology.


240 persons have already been incorporated into CIMA, scientists, technicians as well as Civil Servants and Management staff. In the medium or long term, those responsible for CIMA hope the Centre will become self-financing by means of the commercialisation of patented discoveries. «The basic idea is to apply these findings to the patients. We hope that everybody will be able to benefit from the achievements made», according to a spokesperson.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
