The goal of the Centre is to conduct frontier research in biotechnology and bioengineering and to develop models of important biological systems using tools of modern bioengineering and a systems biotechnology approach
The Centre for Biotechnology and Engineering (CeBiB) has the mission of stimulating the Chilean economic growth through the development of an interdisciplinarian research team which includes young scientists as well as regional research teams. Our main goal is to do frontier science in biotechnology and bioengineering.
We will play a key role in the education and specialization of doctorate students and post-doctoral researchers from Chile and abroad, and in the training of an important number of young scientists who will lead the future scientific advances in Chile.
The Centre for Biotechnology and Engineering (CeBiB) is the most important frontier research centre in biotechnology and bioengineering in Latin America.
CeBiB is a leader in research and development of biotechnology and bioengineering applications, particularly in those fields where Chile has important comparative advantages. Our centre’s aim is to increase those advantages, always in relation with the public and private sectors and the industrial interests and needs. All of these with the goal of increasing the Chilean economy competitiveness based on scientific and technological innovation.
