International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology

The International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology was founded in 1999.

The main goals of IIMCB are:

  • to carry out high quality research in molecular biomedicine;
  • to create the best possible conditions for ambitious, motivated group leaders;
  • to implement modern biotechnology;
  • to teach and popularize molecular medicine and human genetics.

The research focuses on:

  • biology and biochemistry of chaperones;
  • modelling of the structure of restriction enzymes, methyltransferases and photoreceptor proteins;
  • crystallographic structure determination of proteins;
  • studies of molecular basis of neurodegenerative disease and studies of proteins
  • implicated in the mechanism of learning and memory and pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease
  • interdependence between intracellular endocytic transport and nuclear signaltransduction
  • biology of dendritic tree development;
  • mechanics of the actomyosin cortex;
  • structural and biochemical studies of nucleic acid enzymes.

The highest quality of science achieved at IIMCB enabled commercialization of promising inventions by spin-off companies like Proteon Pharmaceuticals developing technology of characterizing the immunotoxic activity of xenobiotic substances.

To further explore commercialisation opportunities IIMCB develops cooperation with industrial partners through:

  • joint research projects;
  • scientific services and expertise;
  • sharing research equipment.

Based on these principles IIMCB has a succesfull collaboration with a number of companies, among the others: Adamed, Celon Pharma, Fermentas, Kucharczyk, Polfa.
