The Institute of Medical Biochemistry Leopoldo de Meis (IBqM) is located at the Center for Health Sciences on the main campus.
IBqM was officially created as an Institute in 1998, evolving from a cognate department, and now conducts research on areas that reflect the breadth of Biochemistry, always focusing on understanding basic mechanisms that are relevant for medical conditions.
