Director Científico

Welcome to the website of the Health Research Institute of the Balearic Islands (IdISBa).


Here you can see the large arrangement of institutions that the IdISBa represents. The IdISBa has established 7 research areas, which are comprised by the 55 research groups and around 800 researchers of the Institute. This is the result of 10 years of hard work, which also made possible that the IdISBa got the recognized accreditation of the Carlos III Health Institute in 2019. I would like to express my gratitude for the ongoing efforts and dutifulness of all of the IdISBa employees during this period.


The IdISBa is open for collaboration and, for this reason, we want to expand the horizons of the Institute and thus support synergies and make the results reach more efficiently the population. In our website, you can find information regarding our research areas, groups and projects, as well as our scientific and technical platforms and our research output. Because researchers require the support from the management and administrative staff, we plan to strengthen their collaborative structure to optimize resources and maintain an integrative work environment that promotes the excellence in research.


I would also like to emphasize our commitment to promoting innovation initiatives as well as research quality. We must encourage the development of multidisciplinary research projects that align with the main health challenges. Sharing scientific findings helps to the cross-sectional knowledge, with the duty of each researcher being key to providing relevant information about different pathologies and their determinants.


We will keep working towards improving our visibility, strengthening our institutional alliances, and consolidating our funding. Additionally, we must take a step further in the promotion of activities that involve the citizens’ participation and implication in research.


In accordance with the new strategic plan, which we will be preparing for the coming years, our goal is to promote the collaboration in research, which must be oriented not only to improving the people’s health, but also their hope.


Thank you for visiting our website.

Managing Director


Director Gerente

First, allow me to welcome you to the Health Research Institute of the Balearic Islands (IdISBa), which was created in 2013 to convey all the health research and innovation that is carried out in the Balearic Islands.


After more than 10 years, IdISBa has become a main focal point for researchers, health professionals, patients, and the general society. Thanks to this outcome, our more than 800 researchers from seven different research areas can join forces and commit to improve people's health and wellbeing.


On January 30, 2024, the IdISBa obtained the re-accreditation as a health research center of excellence that is awarded by the Carlos III Health Institute (ISCIII). This is proof of our commitment to keep on with the development of biomedical and health research in the Balearic Islands.


The functional areas of the IdISBa, which I've been a part of for the last 10 years, have always worked tirelessly to maximize the activity of our researchers as well as to organize and manage the available resources for the growth and consolidation of the Institute.


As the Managing Director, I will work to keep on with our excellent labor and to push forward new initiatives that will allow us to achieve further milestones in the field of health research and innovation.


I invite you to surf our website to become familiar with the different research projects we are working on, to access our library of services, resources, and publications, as well as to stay informed about the latest news on health and research in the Balearic Islands.
