Improving health through personalised computation.
Maximal data utility, driving optimised decision support.

Sano is building Europe’s foremost centre for the advancement of computational medicine, developing sophisticated engineering methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, to meet the overarching worldwide need for efficient, effective and radically streamlined healthcare.

The mission of Sano involves:

  • development of new computational methods, algorithms, models, and technologies for personalized medicine,
  • introducing new diagnostic and therapeutic solutions based on computerized simulations into clinical practice,
  • fostering creation and growth of enterprises which develop cutting-edge diagnostic and therapeutic technologies,
  • contributing to novel training and education curricula which meet the needs of modern personalized medicine.

To these ends, Sano is closely cooperating with hospitals and enterprises from the growing health and life science sector in and around Kraków.

Jülich’s contributions, in particular in the areas of data management, computational pipelines, and high-level services, are coordinated by the SimLab Biology at JSC.
