The newly opened Biological and Chemical Research Center (CENT III) at the University of Warsaw aims to conduct research in areas such as biotechnology, chemical and biochemical technology and environmental protection, in addition to pharmaceutical sciences, medicine and energy. Ultimately the center will be home to more than 130 modern laboratories with top-caliber equipment.

The center’s opening March 22 attracted a host of officials including Science and Higher Education Minister Barbara Kudrycka, who said that the development of Poland’s science sector depends not only on infrastructure and the existence of research centers, but also on the professionalism and potential of the country’s researchers. “The University of Warsaw’s faculties of chemistry and biology are among the most active research centers in Poland and they have secured a high level of co-financing per researcher employed,” Kudrycka said.

The Biological and Chemical Research Center aims to not only conduct scientific research, but also develop ties with the business sector and seek financial support from institutions including the European Research Council (ERC).

According to Prof. Marcin Pałys, rector of the University of Warsaw, the university’s Biological and Chemical Research Center is one of the most modern biological and chemical research centers in Europe. It will offer expertise and be home to certified laboratories focusing on effective collaboration with industry, Pałys said.

The total cost of building the center is around zl.290 million, with the European Union’s Innovative Economy Operational Program providing 85 percent of that amount. The first stage of the project claimed more than zl.150 million.

Last year, a Radiopharmaceuticals Production and Research Center was launched on the University of Warsaw’s Ochota campus, where radiopharmaceuticals are produced for positron emission tomography, a medical imaging technique that produces three-dimensional images of processes in the body. Soon another two facilities will open at the University of Warsaw: a Center for New Technology and the new headquarters of the Faculty of Physics.
