MIPT Life Sciences Center
MIPT Life Sciences Center (LSC) is the MIPT department specializing in life sciences. The LSC carries out fundamental and applied research in the fields of pharmaceutics, development of new medical technologies, innovative diagnostic and treatment technologies, agro-biotechnologies. The LSC infrastructure includes MIPT Bio Business Incubator, as well as centers of excellence (analytical laboratories and MIPT Genome center).
The Rector of MIPT,
“The global pharmaceutical industry is now seeking an elusive path between promising fundamental research and its transformation into real commercial products. Success depends on a close interaction between science, education and industry. MIPT is building a science and education complex, under whose roof we hope to create such a diversified community. The Institute has a long history working on the physics of life sciences, and we are confident that we can create a proper environment for synergy between physics and mathematics, on the one hand, and biology, chemistry and medicine, on the other, which will be at the cutting edge of modern science. Dialogue between experts of the older and younger generations is an important step towards our goal.”
President of the Life Sciences Center at MIPT
“The MIPT Life Sciences Center is only the first step towards building a continuous innovation system to implement new knowledge at the University. The success of this initiative is already apparent, driven by the energy of our most talented young undergraduate and graduate students, many of whom already have their own start-ups or businesses. They represent the nucleus of a healthy economic future for Russia. It's amazing to see how MIPT, as a leading technology university, acts as a magnet for industry, and for international science.”
Executive Director of the Life Sciences Center at MIPT
“At MIPT Life Sciences Center we create a complete infrastructure to support start-ups, as well as help existing research teams to develop their projects. In 2015 we will move to the new biopharmaceutical building and we hope that the favourable working environment there will help scientists to address the challenges, which they face.”
