RESEARCH+

The Central Support Units for Biomedical and Health Sciences Research (UCAIB) are made up of a set of common scientific services, infrastructures and equipment that belong to or are associated with some of the entities that make up INiBICA, staffed by their own technical personnel, who provide technical and methodological support and advice to the Institute's research personnel, as well as to external users and organizations that request it.

The main objective of these services is to guarantee the maintenance and correct operation of the different instrumental techniques and to facilitate the access of research personnel and companies to them through specialized advice on their use and performance.

Currently, most of the UCAIB is located in the Research Unit of Hospital Universitario Puerta del Mar (UI-HUPM) and in the Central Services for Research in Biomedicine (SC-IBM), located in the Andrés Segovia building of the University Campus of Cádiz, centers that have the technology, equipment and knowledge necessary to be at the forefront of research.

Research Unit of the Hospital Universitario Puerta del Mar

The Research Unit of the University Hospital "Puerta del Mar" (U.I.H.U.P.M) has about 650 m2 of laboratories, with equipment financed by infrastructure grants (e.g. FEDER funds) and Projects for research granted to research groups by different state and regional agencies (FIS, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Science of the Regional Government of Andalusia, among others).
