CENTRE OF MOLECULAR BIOTECHNOLOGY FOR HEALTHY LIFE
Biotech solutions bringing health to living organisms and environment
supported by mass spec-focused research platform

Objective

MOBI4HEALTH is intended to support the Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology University of Gdansk & Medical University of Gdansk (IFB) in its activities to boost its research and innovation potential through establishing a Centre of Molecular Biotechnology for Healthy Life: MOBI4HEALTH Centre. IFB, founded in 1993, is one of the top three biological science faculties in Poland. Basic and applied research performed its research units cover the areas of molecular biotechnology, biomedicine and environment protection. The project is in line with IFB’s strategy, which is to adapt the research potential and existing excellence of the IFB to the current and future needs of the human & environmental health sector and knowledge-based economy. MOBI4HEALTH Centre will use collaboration with 10 partners from UK, France, Germany, Italy, Greece and Spain to achieve improved research capacity through:

•employment of new experienced researchers and specialists for the mass spec core facility,
•acquisition of mass spec equipment to ensure future cutting-edge research,
•significant increase of scientific expertise through intensified international cooperation with leading European partners,
•dissemination of skills acquired through twinning & networking activities in form of hands-on courses and workshops as well as dissemination of MOBI4Health project results at two international conferences that will target local/regional stakeholders in order to strengthen links with pharmaceutical companies, entrepreneurs, health professionals, policy-makers and media.
•the implementation of an IP & Innovation Strategy with the goal of enhancing the ability of research staff to commercialize research achievements ensuring proper IP protection.
This action plan will ensure that MOBI4HEALTH Centre can deliver sustainable innovative science based on advanced mass spec applications, future research interactions and long-lasting cooperation at regional and European level.
