Meet our Group
___HOW WE WORK
Our group has experience in the application of multiple molecular biology and immunology techniques for the study of liver and digestive diseases, both in experimental models and in patients.
We collaborate with international groups in different projects, both basic and translational, sharing with them our common interest in preventing or improving the prognosis of inflammatory complications associated with these diseases.
Facilities and resources
Our facilities have the necessary equipment and infrastructure to carry out the projects that finance our research activity. These resources are regularly updated to ensure the use of adequate technology and improve the quality of research results
The main goal of our Group is translational research on advanced chronic disease and IBD
