Partnering for excellence in Health

The Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute joins the Health Universitat de Barcelona Campus (HUB)

On 20 May our research institute; the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) joined the Health University of Barcelona Campus (HUBc); a campus of international excellence promoted by the University of Barcelona to coordinate the interaction between leading hospitals and research institutes in the field of health. The HUBc was created in 2010 as an environment in which to promote excellence and share knowledge, but also to promote knowledge transfer between institutions (hospitals, university and research centres) and to society in general.

The HUB is a dynamic environment in which the different partners compliment each other to boost knowledge and development.   It includes the Ministry of Health of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Universities and Research Commission, also of the Catalan Government, top health care centres, the city councils of Barcelona and Hospitalet de Llobregat and the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation, the Bellvitge Institute of Biomedical Research (IDIBELL) and the Augustí Pí i Sunyer Institute of Biomedical Research (IDIBAPS) amongst others.
