About Us

The thematic area of Respiratory Diseases (CIBERES), a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional group, has the aim of fighting respiratory diseases by furthering excellence in research and its fast and safe translation to clinical practice. It is made up of 33 groups in which there are around 400 researchers with a multidisciplinary profile working jointly on projects covered in nine Corporate Research Programmes: lung cancer, sleep apnoea, pulmonary fibrosis, asthma, acute pulmonary lesions, tuberculosis, pneumonias, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD) and new therapeutic targets. Its network structure means it can bring together some of the best basic, clinical and epidemiological research groups located in healthcare and research centres in nine autonomous communities.
