Presentación

Biomedical Research is one of the most dynamic sectors with the greatest impact in today's society. Its fundamental objective is to deepen the knowledge of the molecular, biochemical, cellular, genetic, pathophysiological and epidemiological mechanisms of human diseases, as well as to develop or improve its diagnosis and establish strategies for its prevention and treatment.

In the last decades there have been great scientific advances in the different disciplines involved in this sector, which has allowed us to know the human organism, the biological foundations that explain its functioning in health, and the cellular and molecular bases of diseases.

Scientific research therefore makes it possible to obtain new knowledge and is one of the distinctive features of a quality higher education institution. In this light, the PUCMM is committed to "the search for new knowledge that responds to social problems and the demands of the common good," and to "increasing the critical mass of researchers who can undertake reach projects."...
