Centro Ciencia & Vida is a national scientific center of excellence and home to more than 120 scientists working in three main areas: Biomedicine, Computational Biology and Microbiology. These areas have been divided into 5 clusters.
The application of computational modeling techniques has been key to unveil fundamental laws governing complex biological phenomena. This cluster relies on using advanced knowledge from biology, ecology, chemistry, sociology, mathematics & physics to develop computational models to study...More
Understanding the variety of cellular and molecular processes underlying pathologies affecting the Central Nervous System (CNS) is critical to advance in the identification of therapeutic opportunities for neurodegenerative disorders. This cluster is dedicated to studying complex biological...More
Cancer remains a public health problem due to inadequate onset responses or later resistance of many different tumors to current therapeutic drugs. This cluster attempts to improve our understanding of recently emerged cellular regulation processes that contribute to cancer progression, unveiling...More
Despite the cumulative knowledge related to the mechanistic aspects of viral infection and the establishment and dynamics of microbiomes, fundamental questions about virus/microbe-host biology remain to be solved. This cluster is focused on dissecting the interactions between virus/microbe-host to...More
At present, there is no clear evidence of the origin and conditions leading to autoimmune diseases. The main focus of this Cluster is on the immune response, with an ultimate view on how its manipulation under several conditions could bring about therapeutic approaches. We will join efforts to...More
