Institut de Recerca Biomèdica de Lleida Fundació Dr Pifarré
IRBLleida is a non-profit research organization created in 2004 as a result of a collaboration agreement between the Catalan Health Institute (ICS), Dr Pifarré Foundation and the University of Lleida (UdL), to boost synergies between basic, clinical and epidemiological research carried out in the region of Lleida with the aim of improving clinical practice for the benefit of the entire population.
The institute is an autonomous legal body which brings together researchers from the Faculty of Medicine of UdL, Faculty of Nursing of UdL, the University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova (HUAV), Regional Services of the Ministry of Health-ICS Lleida, and Gestió de Serveis Sanitaris (GSS) in a unique and single research institution in the region.
