The Foundation Institute of Biomedical Research and Technological Development (Inbiomed) started in September 1997 as a private research foundation located at the Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park. The strategic goal was to support and expand the research activities in the oncology field at the University of the Basque Country and the Hospital Donostia.
A new board was constituted in 2003 promoting a novel strategic plan (2003-2007) reorienting the foundation's activities towards stem cell research and their application to regenerative medicine, creating at the same time distinctive technologies and servicies for the pharmaceutical/biotechnological industry and the clinic. The strategic objective was to create a self-funded research structure capable of producing high quality basic-oriented research in a cutting edge biomedical field as well as high value servicies for the productive sector.
The board was consolidated in 2009 with the committed support of Obra Social Kutxa, starting the new 2015 strategic plan with the main goal of making Inbiomed an international reference in Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Medicine.
The scientific structure of Inbiomed is currently organizad around two research programs focused on Hematological and Neurodegenerative Diseases, such as Parkinson's Disease.
