BioInfoBank Institute

is a non-for-profit research and development (R&D) organization. Our mission is to create, inspire and incubate innovative ideas in life-sciences. We also promote and facilitate unrestricted and effective research of excellent young Polish scientists. The results of our work are worldwide innovative technological and biomedical solutions. Some of them are converted into commercial projects that can be disseminated across the BioInfoBank network and developed through a spin-off program. The institute is not only involved in research but also initiates the commercial exploitation of scientific discoveries.

The main scientific focus of the institute is bioinformatics, an inter-disciplinary field of science driven by achievements in biotechnology and information technology. The second research area is constituted by biotechnology and molecular biology – especially exploited for anti-cancer therapy. The third research area is focused around blockchain technology and applications in fintech. The fourth research area is the design of application specific integrated circuits (ASICs).
