Barcelona—Jordi Camí, MD, professor of pharmacology at Pompeu Fabra University (PFU) in Barcelona, is enthusiastic about the accomplishments and ongoing changes at an associated facility that he leads, the Municipal Institute of Biomedical Research (IMIM). In addition to an ambitious, high-output Unit of Respiratory and Environmental Research, he is proud of a pioneering code of good scientific practice launched last year as well as of the fact that members of the Bioinformatics Unit contributed to—and coauthored—one of the two recently published maps of the human genome. And most of all, he is pleased that his institute will become the nucleus of the future Biomedical Research Park of Barcelona, a facility that will employ about 1000 scientists and others.
