Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG)

 

The CRG is an International biomedical research institute of excellence created in December 2000. It is a non-profit foundation funded by the Catalan Government through the departments of Economy & Knowledge and Health, the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, and includes the participation of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF).
The mission of the CRG is to discover and advance knowledge for the benefit of society, public health and economic prosperity.
The CRG believes that the medicine of the future depends on the groundbreaking science of today. This requires an interdisciplinary scientific team focused on understanding the complexity of life from the genome and the cell up to an entire organism and its interaction with the environment, offering an integrated view of genetic diseases.
