Centre for New Methods in Computational Diagnostics and Personalised Therapy

Centre for New Methods in Computational Diagnostics and Personalised Therapy

Sano Centre, created in Kraków, Poland, in the framework of Teaming for Excellence Phase 2 action, as well as the FNP International Research Agendas competition and with a financial support from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, will be a major driver for European advancement in rapidly growing field of computational medicine, developing sophisticated engineering methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, and meeting the overarching worldwide need for radically streamlined healthcare systems.

The Sano’s area of operation is computational medicine:

  • clinician-led activity can be radically reduced by migrating the majority of routine clinical assessments toward computationally-driven,
  • entirely new approaches to disease diagnosis and management follow the development of novel computed biomarkers of disease, personalised to the individual patient, and typically leading to dramatically reduced costs.

The Sano Centre combines expertise in machine-learning based decision science with fundamental biomarker identification using advanced simulation and data analysis methods.

When fully developed, the Centre will act as a core technology provider for industry, fostering modernisation, innovation and increasing productivity, and additionally it will act as a catalyst, attracting new investment and businesses. It will provide an essential link between computational, medical sciences and the industrial sector, thus fostering knowledge and technology transfer and accelerating innovation.

Sano was established in Kraków because of several local advantages with regard to the education and research infrastructure, the high concentration of research hospitals and a dynamic entrepreneurial community in life sciences, so being embedded in a highly dynamic and competitive ecosystem.

The Centre will provide a fully sustainable mix of three advanced technical services, loosely categorised as education, project participation and industrial product development, with these three strands ultimately contributing approximately equally to the Centre’s income stream.
