The project MedBioinformatics "Creating medically-driven integrative bioinformatics applications focused on oncology, CNS disorders and their comorbidities" aims to develop useful bioinformatics tools and applications, and autonomously usable for analysing the huge amount of data and knowledge generated in healthcare and biomedical research in order to facilitate translational research and precision medicine. European project funded by H2020 for the period 2015-2018 and coordinated by the GRIB.

more info about the project


The EMIF project aims to develop a common information framework of patient-level data that will link up and facilitate access to diverse medical and research data sources, opening up new avenues of research for scientists. To provide a focus and guidance for the development of the framework, the project will focus initially on questions relating to obesity and Alzheimer’s disease. EMIF is a European project funded by IMI.

Integrating bioinformatics and chemoinformatics approaches for the development of expert systems allowing the in silico prediction of toxicities. European project funded by IMI, extended until 2016 and coordinated by the GRIB. The eTOX project aims to develop a drug safety database from the pharmaceutical industry legacy toxicology reports and public toxicology data, innovative in silico strategies and novel software tools to better predict the toxicological profiles of small molecules in early stages of the drug development pipeline.

The Open Pharmacological Concepts Triple Store project (Open PHACTS) will develop an open access innovation platform, called Open Pharmacological Space (OPS), via a semantic web approach. OPS will be comprised of data, vocabularies and infrastructure needed to accelerate drug- oriented research. The aim is to develop an enabling resource for drug discovery projects which is open to all users and freely available in the public domain. This european project is funded by IMI and has been recently extended until 2016.

Consolider RNAREG

RNAREG is a consortium of research groups financed by the Consolider Ingenio Program from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation for the period 2010-2015. The focus of the consortium is the study of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression and the impact of de-regulation of these processes in human disease, particularly in cancer.


RNAs associate with proteins to form highly complex and dynamic ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes. The goal of this Marie Curie ITN is first to bring together existing labs from different discipline, to join forces and tackle key questions in the field, and second, to produce highly-trained young researchers that will be sensitized to RNA and possess a multidisciplinary approach to research.


The aim of this european project of the 7th FP is to promote Biomedical Informatics by means of the permanent monitoring of the scientific state-of-the-art and existing activities in the theme, prospective analysis of the emerging challenges and opportunities, and dissemination of the knowledge in the field. The project is coordinated by the GRIB.

information of the project


ARITMO arose out of the need to identify not only which medications prolong the QT interval, but also those that can cause serious side effects as well as discover the factors that are associated with this risk. The objective of the project is to provide doctors with better guidance when making drug prescription decisions. European project funded by the 7th FP.


An innovative project to pave the way for integration of  the data coming from the patient with the results that the researcher obtains from it, ensuring the quality control and the rational of this flow of information in both directions thanks to the clinicians involvement

Virtual Physiological Human network of excellence


A methodological and technological framework that, once established, will enable collaborative investigation of the human body as a single complex system. It is a way to share observations, to derive predictive hypotheses from them, and to integrate them into a constantly improving understanding of human physiology/pathology, by regarding it as a single system. This european project is a Network of Excellence of the 7th FP.
