Slide Centre for Computational Medicine We create computational technologies for optimised healthcare

Next Sano Seminar on 25th January: Piotr Gawron – Scientific Computing & Information Technology Group Leader Astrocent

Sano is a centre dedicated to the advancement of computational medicine, developing sophisticated computer methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, to meet the overarching worldwide need for efficient, effective and streamlined healthcare

Research excellence

Research Excellence

Sano’s critical mass of research excellence across the spectrum of artificial intelligence and data-driven techniques 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 machine learning and deep data exploration approaches, with advanced simulation and large-scale high-performance computing. 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 over a seven-year period. With this scale of funding, and aided by an excellent European partnership network, we are 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 systems
to automate the uniform provision of predictive healthcare, becoming
the Reference Centre for Computational Medicine in Central Europe.
Pivotal to this vision is:

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 analytical workflows featuring novel biomarkers validated through accelerated processes of clinical validation. Unified systems will support both hospitalised individuals and outpatients throughout the continuum of care.

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.

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 workforce educated in computational medicine.
