About the employer
The Barcelonaβeta Brain Research Center (BBRC) is a research center, affiliated with the Pasqual Maragall Foundation. Its main goal is to improve scientific knowledge on cognitive ageing, in order to develop practical solutions for the world’s aging population and the global challenges involved. To achieve this goal the BBRC is committed to different missions such as to champion primary and secondary prevention of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases; to elucidate the mechanisms behind age-related pathologies; to advance science and increase awareness on healthy aging. The BBRC’s vision is to provide society with novel solutions for age-related cognitive decline, leading to improved understanding of the aging brain and the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders. Currently most of BBRC’s research mission is deployed through its Alzheimer’s Prevention Program.
The Pasqual Maragall Foundation, the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) and “la Caixa” are permanent members of the BBRC Board. To ensure science of the highest international quality, the BBRC is bound by core procedures which include international competitive recruitment, state-of-the-art research facilities, efficient management and continuous high-standard peer-review evaluation. The BBRC is affiliated with UPF and its building, located in UPF’s central Campus Ciutadella, was inaugurated in 2016 with a cutting-edge 3T MRI scanner exclusively dedicated to research and all the equipment required for clinical trials on humans. The BBRC is also part of the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), a large scientific institution which hosts multiple biomedical-related research centers, among which the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM), the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences of the Pompeu Fabra University (CEXS-UPF), the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE CSIC-UPF), the Barcelona Institute of Global Health (ISGlobal) and the Barcelona site of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). As such, the BBRC is part of this multidisciplinary, collaborative and stimulating international environment, which, in addition to its proximity to clinical settings, provide the best conditions for translational research.
