"Welcome to the Plentzia Marine Station" said in Basque, an ancient but modern language spoken in Europe since prehistory and still vigorous in the XXI century, also as regards creating and disseminating science. Welcome to a centre conceived one century ago to fight against tuberculosis and bone disease; which remains in the XXI century to promote research, education and dissemination aimed at protecting both ocean health and human wealth and at promoting environmental science, technology and awareness. PiE-UPV/EHU is small but wide-scoped, well-defined but flexible, ad hoc designed for its purposes but modular, dynamic but long-lasting, with strict controls necessary for excellence but wide windows open towards people, and homeland rooted but open-to-globe.

In the PiE-UPV/EHU, research is focused, first, upon conducting high quality experimentation under controlled lab and field conditions; second, upon studying phenomena in the areas of cell biology, molecular biology and genetics, experimental physiology, toxicology and pathology, stress biology, systems biology and biopharmacy; and, finally, upon applying advanced methodologies of manipulation and experimentation with marine organisms, in vitro assays, genomics, proteomics, antibody technology, cryotechnology, spectroscopy, microscopy, image analysis and data treatment.

The PiE-UPV/EHU's research approach resembles the one that embodies Biomedicine and Clinic Research. On the one hand, marine ecosystems and living beings inhabiting the oceans are reckoned as patients, so that its major goals are the development of early warning strategies, the application of non-invasive and non-destructive techniques, and the understanding of the mechanisms underneath the environmental syndromes. On the other hand, the Ocean is perceived as a potential source of health and wealth for our XXI century's society.
