Centre for Preclinical Research and Technology (CePT)

The project „Centre for Preclinical Research and Technology (CePT)” is the biggest biomedical and biotechnological undertaking in Central and Eastern Europe. The aim of this project is to create a dynamic scientific centre in Warsaw consisting of closely cooperating environmental research centres, conducting research on the most common civilizational diseases, especially: neoplastic, neurological and vascular, as well as ageing and age – related diseases.

The CePT consortium was established by: The Medical University of Warsaw (WUM), being the coordinator, University of Warsaw (UW), Warsaw University of Technology (PW) and seven institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences: Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology (IBD PAN), Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics (IBB PAN), Mirosław Mossakowski Medical Research Center (IMDiK PAN), International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (MIBMiK), Institute of Fundamental Technological Research (IPPT PAN), Institute of High Pressure Physics (IWC PAN), Nałęcz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering (IBIB PAN).

The main goal and at the same time the chief asset of the CePT project is to bring together the potential of outstanding scientists and the opportunities provided by infrastructure of well equipped state-of-the-art core-facility research laboratories: physical and chemical laboratories (UW), biomolecular and biotechnological facilities (UW, PAN, WUM), biomedical engineering and biomaterial technology laboratories (PW, PAN), units conducting preclinical research on animal models of diseases associated with the progress of civilization (PAN, WUM), as well as specialized base for clinical research provided by the Medical University of Warsaw. The great value of the CePT project is the interdisciplinary and system approach to investigated problem: from gene and protein to cell and whole organism.

The CePT project becomes an integrated part of the dynamic development of world translational medicine, aimed at urgent introduction of the latest achievements in the scope of preclinical research to practical medicine. The integral part of the CePT project concept is the creation of the technology platform transfer in accordance with the best models of such solutions in Europe taking into account the developing innovative pharmaceutical industry and health needs of the society.
