Mission and Vision


The Centre for Biotechnology and Engineering (CeBiB) has the mission of stimulating the Chilean economic growth through the development of an interdisciplinarian research team which includes young scientists as well as regional research teams. Our main goal is to do frontier science in biotechnology and bioengineering.

We will play a key role in the education and specialization of doctorate students and post-doctoral researchers from Chile and abroad, and in the training of an important number of young scientists who will lead the future scientific advances in Chile.


The Centre for Biotechnology and Engineering (CeBiB) will be one of the most important frontier research centre in biotechnology and bioengineering in Latin America.

CeBiB will be leader in research and development of biotechnology and bioengineering applications, particularly in those fields where Chile has important comparative advantages. Our centre will help to increase those advantages, always in relation with the public and private sectors and the industrial interests and needs. All of these with the goal of increasing Chilean economy competitiveness based in scientific and technological innovation.
