MIGA RESEARCH GROUP

As an institution we support the training and constant training of our researchers and students in collaboration with different Universities and Research Centers around the world.

Our team is made up of postdoctoral, doctoral, postgraduate and undergraduate researchers. Below, we detail the important milestones of our researchers who are abroad.
