The Centre for Cooperative Research in Biosciences (CIC bioGUNE), member of the Basque Research & Technology Alliance (BRTA) is a biomedical research organisation conducting cutting-edge research at the interface between structural, molecular and cell biology. Located in the Science and Technology Park of Bizkaia (Derio, Bilbao), the activity of CIC bioGUNE includes generation of both fundamental and oriented knowledge (publications, patents, lectures in institutions and congresses), training of research talent, and collaboration-building with local, national and international institutions. The center always places their technical advances, infrastructure, and scientific personnel at the service of society, health and business networks, and the global scientific community. CIC bioGUNE has modern scientific infrastructures, led by prestigious scientists, which allow it to compete with the main European research institutes. These include advanced equipment for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction, as well as different core technology platforms where genomes, proteomes and metabolomes can be analyzed.
