Pompeu Fabra University (UPF)

UPF is a public, international and research-intensive university that, in just twenty-five years, has earned a place for itself among the best universities in Europe. The University structures its studies on three main fields of knowledge, closely interconnected and structured on three campuses:

  • Social sciences and humanities, Ciutadella campus
  • Health and life sciences, Mar campus
  • Communication and information technologies, Poblenou campus

The Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS) brings together a multidisciplinary team of more than seventy scientists including biologists, chemists, pharmacists, medical doctors, computer scientists, as well as technicians and project managers. It has a wide experience in the participation and coordination of research projects funded by the European Commission and other research funding agencies. Its staff is also involved in pre and postgraduate teaching at the UPF.

The Department facilities are located in Mar Campus, in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park where an exceptional cluster of research groups work on Computational Biology and Biomedical Informatics. The collaborations within scientists of these groups are frequent and productive, in particular with the Bioinformatics and Genomics program of CRG and with Hospital del Mar research groups.
