The Institute for Biomedical Research "Alberto Sols" (IIB) is a Joint Center for Scientific Research Council (CSIC) and Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM) located on the campus of the Faculty of Medicine. The Institute had its origin at the Institute of Enzymology which was created by Alberto Sols and in 1971 moved from the Center for Biological Research (CIB) at the Faculty of Medicine of the newly founded UAM, to take over the teaching of biochemistry. It was then the Department of Biochemistry and signed the first agreement CSIC-UAM. Later, in 1975 and also from the CIB, they moved to the Faculty Francisco Escobar Gabriella Morreale and his group of Experimental Endocrinology at a space provided by the Department of Morphology. Subsequently, in 1984, created the IIB result of the merger of the Institute of Enzymology and Experimental Endocrinology Group. The IIB was physically located in the Department of Biochemistry, UAM but under the administrative authority of the CSIC.

In 1991, the building itself opened the IIB and signed an agreement with the UAM covering, under equal conditions, the activity of the CSIC staff and faculty of the Department of Biochemistry, at that time, came mostly CSIC, the group of Alberto Sols. This agreement lost force in 1993 as a result of the adoption of a new framework agreement between the CSIC and UAM. He then began talks on a draft Joint Center that would include staff from both institutions. In June 1998, the CSIC and UAM adopted the Convention and created, as known at present, the Institute for Biomedical Research "Alberto Sols", which integrates the Joint Center CSIC IIB and the Department of Biochemistry at the UAM.

This report summarizes the activities of the Institute for Biomedical Research "Alberto Sols" (IIB) for the 2004-2005 biennium.
