María Bodí and Alejandro Rodríguez (responsible for the group) are members of CIBERes (ISCIII) node 14 (IP Dr. Antoni Torres). The group is structured around a responsible researcher (María Bodí) who is an associate professor at the URV, Head of the Intensive Care Unit of the HJ23 and Territorial Coordinator of Transplants in the province of Tarragona and Alejandro Rodriguez, also a professor associate of the URV and National Coordinator of the Serious Influenza / COVID-19 registry of the SEMICYUC.

Over the last few years, as a Consolidated Research Group (AGAUR), the Group’s different lines of research have been consolidated through a large number of national and international competitive projects, and a line of research has been consolidated. in health data with the incorporation of 4 data scientists. The SIS group has a high scienti fic output with more than 70 points of impact factor per year.
