committed to conducting high impact
researches in biotechnology and
transferring the scientific discoveries
to biotech industry and to the
society in general by translating
them into economical values and
Research facilities and resources
are of world class, and there are many
research programs undergoing, some of
which are expected to produce tangible
outcomes in the near future.
POSTECH Biotech Center,having selected three core areas: Molecular Medicine, Plant
Biotechnology,and Nano Biotechnology,is focusing its major resources on them with a goal in mind
to grow into a world class research institute in biotech field.
Members of the Center are not only identifying new drug candidates by unveiling relevant proteins
and genes,but developing new plants of high immunity for enhanced food supply and eco-friendly energy.
Also,application of nanotechnology for the early diagnosis of various diseases has been studied.
In each core research
area, the research programs are designed
for multidisciplinary and integrative
efforts, focusing on strategic projects
for the materialization of short-term
success, innovative projects for creating
major impacts on science and social
benefits, and platform projects to provide
a continuous pipeline of major technologies,
some of which may grow into strategic
projects for future growth.
PBC also manages Business Incubation
Program to accelerate the application
of the innovative technologies.
