As a result of the national call for the recognition and measurement of Research Groups, Technological Development or Innovation and for the recognition of Researchers of the National System of Science, Technology and Innovation – SNCTeI 2017, the IDCBIS research group in transfusion medicine, Tissue and cell (GIMTTYC) was recognized in Category C.
Colciencias affirmed that the criteria established for the definition of a research, technological development or innovation group were applied, where 7,362 records were applied in GrupLAC endorsed by the institutions to participate in it.
In Group C, 2,149 groups were recognized, including the GIMTTYC led by Dr. Bernardo Camacho.
The GIMTTYC group is an interdisciplinary group with actions aimed at developing three main areas of health: transfusion medicine, tissue and cellular therapy. Its objective is to identify health problems in the areas of transfusion medicine, tissue and cellular therapy in order to contribute to the solution of these through the development of research projects based on ethical criteria, which generate new knowledge, strengthen the training of researchers and consolidate research networks.
With this recognition, the group will continue working to achieve a positive impact on the solution of health problems that are part of transfusion medicine, tissue and cell therapy. Likewise, it will continue contributing in the training of researchers in these areas and forming knowledge networks.
