CIBERER (Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Enfermedades Raras) (CIBERER)
Here at the CIBER of Rare Diseases (CIBERER) our work is done with the main aim of trying to find answers and solutions to allow an improvement in the quality of life of the people affected by these pathologies.
The CIBERER is a network cooperative structure, with 62 research groups located at the main research centres all over Spain. These groups are structured in seven scientific programmes depending on their common lines of work, which means we can combine our endeavours, optimise our resources and make the greatest use of the knowledge generated.
Our research work is done through the cooperation of basic and clinical research groups, for the purpose of seeking the causes and disorders in biological mechanisms which generate Rare Diseases. Our work is oriented towards generating new scientific knowledge enabling us to learn the biological bases of RD, the development of new treatments and the availability of new diagnostic procedures for these illnesses.
To carry out this research with a clearly translational approach it is vital to ensure interaction with healthcare professionals, the people affected and the associations which support them, in order to pass on the progress in research to them, as well as finding out their proposals and learning about their needs.
