Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL)
Research centre for cancer, neurosciences and translational medicine
The Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) is a biomedical research center established in 2004. Its stakeholders are Bellvitge University Hospital and Viladecans Hospital of the Catalan Institute of Health, the Catalan Institute of Oncology, University of Barcelona and the town council of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat.
IDIBELL is located in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, south of Barcelona. It is a member of the Campus of International Excellence of the University of Barcelona HUBc and part of the CERCA institution of the Generalitat of Catalonia. In 2009, it became one of the first five Spanish research centers accredited as a health research institute by the Carlos III Institute of Health.
A key aspect of IDIBELL's research is its proximity to the patient. Because of its location and the healthcare activity that many of its researchers carry out, IDIBELL research groups can identify which problems are really a priority and which solutions are effective in daily clinical practice.
