Turku Centre for Biotechnology, Company Profile

18:59 EDT 24th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Turku Centre for Biotechnology is an institute of University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University. The Centre provides technical expertise and coordinating services for academic and industrial projects in several central areas of biotechnology. Many of the key instruments have been installed at the Centre to create "core facilities" for biotechnical research.
Turku Centre for Biotechnology was established in 1992 to facilitate biotechnology and biomedical research and scientific interactions between research groups across departments and within the two universities. This concept has proved efficient and helps in optimizing the use of resources. The Centre has also provided a forum for active interactions between academia and industry. Such interactions have resulted in a number of biotech companies, which are based on scientific discoveries in academia.

Today, we have three major functions. We are involved in research, training and education. We provide expertise and services in the area of biotechnology and aim at staying in the frontier of new technologies and research. We are also interested in facilitating interactions and discussions between academia and industry
