Who we are?

In Esperanto, Sano means “health”. Thus, since the very beginning the Institute focus on interdisciplinarity and cooperation of all specialists in the field of broadly understood medicine, IT and technology. Everything to shape future healthcare with usage of computational personalized medicine. The strategic objectives of the Centre span five domains:

  • The main aim and challenge for modern medicine is to provide all patients with the best quality of life, and this can be achieved through personalized treatment. This approach not only provides better healing effects, but also fewer side effects. Equally important is the fact that thanks to individualized diagnostics and therapy, the costs associated with treatment are reduced, which in turn means that more people can receive treatment for the same money. The benefits of personalized healthcare are therefore extremely important in both developed and developing countrie.

Mission & Vision

Who – What – Why of Sano

Most organizations know who they are and what they do. Nevertheless only few of them know why they do what they do. In Sano we know what we do and how to do it on the highest level. We believe in computational medicine solutions and we enjoy our work. Based on that we define our mission and values.

Our passion is asking questions and seeking for unconventional answers.

The main object is creating and tailoring futurist ideas to medicine by using computational medicine. Multidisciplinarity of the projects and diverse perspectives are our strength. By respecting and valuing ethical standards, in particular good scientific practices, transparency, reproducibility of our research and knowledge dissemination, we are building strong connections between us, which empower one another to best work. Thus it become our mission to connect people, ideas and different pespectives no matter of age, ethnicity, or religion. That is why, we want to become one of the best Centre for computational medicine in Central Eastern Europe.

Our values


Passion in what we do, engagement in Sano operations, taking responsibility, providing initiative, being happy at work.


Boldness in articulating and pursuing novel ideas, courage to think outside the box.


Directness, openness, tolerance and respect. Scientific integrity (we do not cut corners).


Diversity in backgrounds, cultures and opinions of Sano employees. Promotion of women in STEM.


Guided by our mission and values, integrity is very important to us. What’s more, we want to be the best in our field. That’s why we work with world-renowned partners from around the world and shape the future of healthcare together. Together, because we are confident that in collaboration we can tailor diagnostics and therapy for each patient.
