Centre for advancement of computational medicine to open in Kraków

The Sano Centre for Computational Personalised Medicine, an international research foundation, will be launched in Kraków, southern Poland, thanks to funds from the European Commission.

It is one of three Polish projects selected from the prestigious Teaming for Excellence competition.

The Sano Centre for Computational Personalised Medicine will develop innovative methods of medical diagnostics and personalised therapy methods, which will be supported by advanced computer simulations.

According to the centre, the project will also conceive new computational methods and algorithms, and implement models and new diagnostic and therapeutic methods technologies related to personalised medicine. Also, the initiative will contribute to new training programmes for the needs of modern, individualised medicine.

The project's budget is valued at EUR 30 mln, of which half of the amount is funded by the EC in the scope of the Horizon 2020 programme. It is also financed by the Foundation for Polish Science and the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
