IMIBIC Research Support Services

The Research Support Services comprise the IMIBIC’s shared scientific services, infrastructures and equipment that provide technical and methodological support and advice to the researchers of the Institute, as well as to external researchers upon request.

The Services are run and managed by the Deputy Scientific Directors and the General Manager of the IMIBIC under the advice of the Infrastructures Commission. The various Services are staffed by joint technical personnel specifically appointed to each Service Unit. Each Service Unit may be coordinated and advised by an IMIBIC senior researcher appointed by the Scientific Director.

These Research Support Services have been developed internally, but with the external support of equivalent structures from the IMIBIC participating institutions. Two services of the University of Cordoba belong to this category: The Central Service for Research Support (SCAI) and the Animal Experimentation Service (SAEX).

IMIBIC adheres to the Transparency Agreement on the Use of Animals in Scientific Experimentation, promoted by the Confederation of Scientific Societies of Spain (Confederación de Sociedades Científicas de España - COSCE) with the collaboration of the European Animal Research Association EARA.
