Institute of Biomedical Technologies


From the outset, the ITB has worked to consolidate itself as a centre of excellence, following an objective based strategic plan devised in conjunction with external scientific committees, and with the firm support of the different vice-chancellors at the ULL and of the distinct local institutions (e.g., the Regional Government of Tenerife).

After the initial phases in which the project was drafted and approved by the governing body of the ULL, The Canary Islands Government created the Institute by decree (11/2006, BOC 20th February, 2006). The first Internal Regulations (IR) of the ITB were approved by the Governing Board of the ULL in 2010, with an update being approved on the 21st of December 2018, aimed to adapt the structure and governing bodies more closely to the institute’s objectives.
