The School of Medicine is part of the Biomedical Campus of the University of Navarra, which carries out interdisciplinary and translational work that covers multiple fields. This research activity, at an international level, is promoted from different departments and centers, and it fosters academic and scientific work that affects both students and society.
#MedUNAV is closely linked to the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA) and the Institute of Tropical Health. This relationship benefits students, who not only receive direct training from those who generate Science, but also have the opportunity to participate in research projects through specific diplomas such as Biomedical Research.
Clínica Universidad de Navarra
The research of the clinical departments of the School of Medicine is carried out within the framework of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, while the basic departments of the School develop some very important lines of research.
Center for Applied Medical Research
The Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA) plays a decisive role in biomedical research at the University of Navarra. CIMA focuses its work on four priority research areas, led by faculty members: Cardiovascular Sciences, Genetic Therapy and Hepatology, Neuroscience, and Oncology.
Institute of Tropical Health
The School of Medicine also promotes the Institute of Tropical Health, which seeks to bring basic research closer to clinical application in collaboration with hospitals and research centers in universities in developing countries. Its objective is to find solutions for diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and control of diseases common in these areas.
Institute for Culture and Society
The Institute for Culture and Society is a multidisciplinary research center which focuses on finding scientific answers and innovative proposals that contribute to solving the main challenges of today's society. Two of the main projects led by faculty members are: Education of human affectivity and sexuality and Human dignity, advanced illness and palliative care.
