Our Mission

We bridge engineering and biology to advance the development
of new biopharmaceuticals.

For Partners

We create value by leveraging our scientific and technological knowledge in Biology and Engineering. We develop improved and innovative bioprocesses, products and analytical tools. We work to maximize knowledge transfer between academia and industry.


R&D projects with industry partners

For Scientists

We employ, train, and develop interdisciplinary and creative scientists to work at the interface between technological development and tech transfer. We offer cutting-edge infrastructure for biotechnology research. We fund original ideas from early-career scientists through iBETXplore innovation program.


PhD holders and 40 PhD students distinguish our highly qualified research community

Right now we are developing
a next-generation vaccine against malaria.

Our scientists are producing
heart cells to build an artificial ventricle.

We are culturing mini-brain tumours to help companies
test ground-breaking anti-cancer therapies.
