Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona - UAB

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona plays a leading role in scientific research. Its main areas of investigation include Biotechnology and Biomedicine (including the vital contribution made through the clinical research carried out at associate hospitals), Animal Health, Food Technology and Safety, Environmental Sciences and Technology, Nanotechnology, Microelectronics, Material Science and Engineering, Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence, Experimental Sciences, Social Sciences, and research in Humanities. This wide range of disciplines all integrated into one area helps to promote multidisciplinarity in research. The university coordinates a potent scientific and technological centre (the Esfera UAB), promotes new business projects, and directs and projects its productive activity towards its socio-economic surroundings by disseminating new knowledge.

UAB’s research groups participating in TREAT-NMD have long standing experience in the development, and production of viral vectors and gene therapy strategies for diseases afecting the nervous system, as well as optimization of large-scale cell culture-based systems and preparation and purification of the biological material by using bioreactors.

Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is a high complexity hospital which dates back six centuries, making it the oldest hospital in Spain. The hospital attends over 34,000 admissions each year and more than 150,000 emergencies. In the field of research, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is one of the most prominent centres in Spain, as can be appreciated from the volume of papers published and their input factor, the number and quality of projects which receive funding and the grants awarded.
