CIMA's vision is to be an international benchmark center for biomedical research that is valued for the importance of its scientific discoveries and because some of its research results are used to improve the health of patients, thus combining the generation of knowledge with innovation and medical impact on society. .
Its close ties with the Schools of Medicine, Science and Pharmacy, and with Clínica Universidad de Navarra enable it to create synergies to make academic knowledge and research on cell and molecular biology available for use in healthcare applications.
The scientific activity of CIMA respects the values of the University of Navarra and is based on a code of ethics approved by the center's Board of Management.
