    Cancer has become one of the diseases with the greatest socio-economic impact in the Western world. According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), the forecast of causes of death in the period 2002-2030, cites cancer as being the principal cause of death in the developed world, ahead of cardiovascular diseases, AIDS or traffic accidents, increasing its incidence by more than 60%.

    The CIBIR, being conscious of the need to invert this forecast, has committed to the strategic development of an area of research into cancer.

    This area includes the Angiogenesis Unit, the Unit of Proliferation and Differentiation and the Lung Cancer Unit.
