The Center for Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology (CBIB), hosted at the Faculty of Biological Sciences at University Andres Bello in Santiago, Chile, is composed by an interdisciplinary team, and its main objective is to develop research strategies that combine the benefits of theoretical estimations and experimental validation. It was born in 2012, after an important effort by the University to install a first-rate applied research center.
Currently, CBIB develops state-of-the-art research in the areas of Molecular Simulation, Computational Genomics, Bionanotechnology, Drug Discovery & Drug Delivery, Bioengineering, Biophysical Characterization and Software Development.
Through this integrated approach, CBIB generates an iterative cycle of research, based on observation, modeling, simulation and experimental validation, to finally contribute to the development of solutions to biological, medical and biotecnological problems that affect everyday life.
CBIB is directed by Fernando Danilo González-Nilo, PhD. and counts with 7 Principal Investigators and more than 90 members of several fields such as bioinformatics, biochemistry, chemistry, biology and physics. Currently has 20 R&D projects in execution, some of them in collaboration with prestigious national and international partners.
