Neurosciences and Sense Organs

This is perhaps the oldest research area of the Ramón y Cajal Hospital. Since its inception, translational research in the field of Neurology and of Neurosciencesin general, has played a prominent role in the research activity of the hospital and currently constitutes the largest research area of IRYCIS.

Microbiology, Immunology and Infection

Basic researchers and medical specialists are integrated to meet the common general objective of translational research in microbiology, immunology and infectious diseases. An omics approach is applied to the studies of microbial system models in order to optimize the diagnostic, therapeutic, prognostic and preventive approaches of infectious diseases. All this combined aims to improve the surveillance of health problems in the field of infection and also disease prevention.

Chronic Diseases and Cancer

Area 3 forms a network of researchers with common objectives in the field of Chronic Diseases and Cancer with a significant international impact. This is the ideal setting for the development of internal and external alliances that foster the excellence and competitiveness needed to grow and provide significant progress in the fight against this type of diseases.

Epidemiology and Health Technology

A common objective of this area is to generate and validate tools with clinical utility for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of different pathologies. The translational nature of the groups should be highlighted that allows collaborations with the majority of the Hospital's clinical services and transversal vocation backed by various collaborations with other IRYCIS groups.

Cardiometabolism and Systems Pathology

The groups dedicated to different fields of biomedical research come together in Area 5 to address complex aspects of the disease that cannot be characterized independently, as they usually occur in the same type of patient throughout disease progression. All groups have the same goal, to generate clinical and translational projects with patient-centered objectives.
