Sano: 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.

Research excellence

Research Excellence

Sano’s critical mass of research excellence across the spectrum of in silico medicine generates the momentum needed to propel new discoveries onward into clinical practice, with profound global impact bringing enhanced patient benefit.
Comprehensive R&D portfolio

Comprehensive R&D Portfolio

Sano’s breadth of capabilities across much of clinical medicine ensures comprehensive engagement with healthcare providers and builds synergies across specialties, to bring consistency and excellence in computational practice, and uniformity of standards under full regulatory supervision.
Clinical & Industrial Engagement

Clinical & Industrial Engagement

Sano’s academic teams are comprehensively engaged with stakeholders throughout the clinical and industrial landscape, in Poland, across Europe and fully internationally, ensuring dynamic alignment with global needs and opportunities, uniting care across boundaries, and delivering long-term sustainability.

Continuous Improvement

Continuous Improvement

Sano’s operational methodology places excellence in standards development at the heart of its mission. The Centre is not only seeking to establish world-leading capability in optimised computationally-driven clinical care, but to ensure that its operating standards evolve continuously, enabling fresh benefits in technology to translate into fully-regulated universal improvement.

Exceptional Opportunity

Sano will combine expertise in biomechanics, large-scale high-performance computing and machine learning-based decision science with fundamental biomarker identification using advanced simulation and data analysis methods. It will act as a core technology and expertise provider for industry, innovation and increased productivity. Operationally, Sano strategically combines the most prestigious scientific grant currently available in Poland – the International Research Agenda project – with one of the most competitive grants in EU’s H2020: Teaming for Excellence Phase 2. Combined with additional Polish Ministry of Science guarantees, the Centre has secured significant investment of 30 million Euro over a seven-year period. With this scale of funding, and aided by an excellent European partnership network, we can be confident that Sano will bring a critical mass to this transformational field of research, in order to translate scientific advancements into clinical practice.

Our vision

The Centre will champion the universal adoption of integrated in silico systems
to automate the uniform provision of predictive healthcare, becoming
the Reference Centre for Computational Medicine in Central Europe.
Pivotal to this vision is:

Unified Systems

Novel in silico technologies will be developed within an integrated framework, eliminating needless repetition, ensuring universal compatibility and promoting adoption of broad standards within the academic and industrial communities.

 

Integrated Data

Pervasive data monitoring will be integrated into diagnostic and treatment algorithms, using machine learning, data mining and Big Data approaches, to yield population-augmented and adaptively-personalised therapies and simulation-based health forecasts.

Health 2050

The Centre will spearhead the migration of European clinical medicine to computationally-driven systems in which, within an informatics-based superstructure, patient care pathways are fully personalised and automated, methodologies are continually optimised from evidence-based data, and healthcare technologies are constantly updated with freshly-created in silico workflows featuring novel biomarkers validated through accelerated processes of clinical validation.

Partnership-driven Development

The clinical, industrial and academic communities will partner with the Centre throughout the R&D process, from the identification of needs to the delivery of solutions, ensuring competitive, optimised products and an in silico-educated workforce.
