Biomedical Research Centre (CIBM)

The biomedical research center (CIBM) of the University of Granada is found into the Health Sciences Technological Park of the same city. It was founded with the goal to gather together researchers, research programs, postgraduate faculty members, instrumental means and economical resources necessary to advance the knowledge and development of the biomedical field through quality research. The focus is both on basic and clinical science, with the aim to translate it to clinical and technological applications. Researchers from CIBM groups usually also have close links and collaborations with other institutes (IBIMER, INYTA, UNETE health ageing excellence unit, BAMC, etc) at the campus. CIBM's mission is to improve the wellbeing and health of all citizens.

Irish Association for Cancer Research (IACR)

Society logo

The Irish Association for Cancer Research (IACR) is an All Ireland non-profit organization for cancer researchers in the Irish biomedical community. Our aim is to bring researchers from different disciplines together to share their expertise, latest information to help promote greater understanding about cancer to ultimately help reduce the burden of cancer. We believe that by working together across all disciplines and centres we can generate a world class environment for cancer research in Ireland.

Spanish Association for Cancer Research (ASEICA)

Society logo

Born in 1983, the Spanish Association for Cancer Research (ASEICA) is a scientific society that brings together more than 1000 leading cancer researchers. ASEICA channels the breakthroughs in cancer research in Spain and, at the same time, spreads the word to advocate necessary improvements in Science. Its objective is to promote cancer research and science dissemination among Oncology professionals. With a translational outlook, ASEICA has become a meeting point between basic and clinical researchers, from predoctoral fellows to more senior researchers, with the ultimate aim of finding the best solutions for addressing the disease.


Spanish Group for Cancer Immuno-Biotherapy (GÉTICA)

Society logo

GÉTICA is a Spanish non-profit association that was established in 2014 by and for clinicians and scientists in basic and/or translational research, who are interested in tumor immunology and immunotherapies for cancer treatment. The overarching aims of GÉTICA are: i) to advance research and development of novel immunotherapies, ii) to promote education of researchers and clinicians in these fields, and iii) to foster public engagement by communicating about the latest developments in cancer immunology and immunotherapy. A further priority is to integrate other scientific societies and cooperative groups with GÉTICA, in order to establish a strong multidisciplinary and collaborative scientific environment that will help us to drive the field of cancer immunology forward and further the development of novel immunotherapies.
