A BIOinformatics research unit with a TRANSlational interest.

In the Translational Bioinformatics Unit (TransBio) we aim to address relevant challenges and bottlenecks in the course of translating basic science research into clinical knowledge. TransBio is a multi-disciplinary team formed by individuals with different combinations of biological, clinical and quantitative knowledge.

TransBio team is located at Navarrabiomed which is a “biomedical research centre of the Government of Navarre that promotes and facilitates the research of public healthcare professionals. Its location in the heart of the Hospital Complex of Navarre encourages close proximity and collaboration between researchers and professionals working in clinical and healthcare environments”. TransBio has long-term established collaborations with teams at Karolinska Institutet, King´s College London  and KAUST.

WE ARE RECRUITING, PLEASE see here for details (if an offer is available) or please contact us directly.
