About the employer

The Biomedical Research Institute of Lleida (IRBLleida) was created to boost synergies between the basic research, the clinical research and the epidemiological research carried out in the region of Lleida with the aim of improving clinical practice for the benefit of the entire population.

In 2004, a collaboration agreement between the Catalan Health Institute (ICS), The Foundation Dr. Pifarré and the University of Lleida (UdL) is signed in order to start IRBLleida project. Since the agreement signature, the Institute has been gradually recognized as the reference entity in health research in the region of Lleida due to the integration of researchers from the Faculty of Medicine of UdL, the University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova (HUAV), Regional Services of the Ministry of Health – ICS Lleida, and the Univeristy Hospital of Santa Maria (HUSM) in a single research institution.

Nowadays, IRBLleida is composed by up to 300 researchers, including those professionals whom also offer expert teaching in Medicine, Nursing, Biomedicine, Human Nutrition and Dietetics and Biotechnology in UdL or clinical assistance. In IRBLleida, researchers are organized into different research groups in 5 major research areas, which cover basic research, clinical practice and also clinical trials. The Government of Catalunya distinguished 13 research groups according to the quality of their research, thus endorsing IRBLleida’s strategic research areas. Moreover, IRBLleida participates, through its research groups, in 9 different national research reference networks in cancer, kidney diseases, respiratory diseases, oxidative stress and aging, among others.
