The Research Center

The IBR was created by the association of CONICET and the Universidad Nacional de Rosario. It is currently one of the leading institutes in biological sciences in Argentina. It was a pioneer in the development of structural biology in the region, installing the first high-field NMR spectrometer in the country.
The Institute is composed of approximately 60 researchers, 100 doctoral and postdoctoral fellows, and support staff, which includes about 30 professionals, technicians, administrative staff and interns, reaching a total of close to 200 people. If about 60 undergraduate students doing their bachelor's thesis are also included, there are currently a total of about 260 people working and studying at the IBR.
In recent years, the quantity, and above all the quality, of the institute's scientific publications has increased considerably.

Research Lines

Since its creation as a multidisciplinary institute in biological sciences, the IBR has developed various research lines in biology and biotechnology of development in vertebrates and plants; molecular, cellular and structural biology of infectious and neurodegenerative diseases; plant cell and molecular biology; and microbial physiology and genetics.
