Discovery & Development: Building Knowledge

Scientific discovery through intramural R&D is the heart of our Science 360° strategy. Our scientists conduct research at different biological scales: from the genome to the population.

Fundación Ciencia & Vida is home to more than 120 scientists, from well-known Chilean researchers to young investigators, graduate and undergraduate students starting their scientific career, working in three main areas:

Biomedicine: Seeking answers to fundamental questions in cellular and molecular biology and in translational research.

Bioresources: Research focused on solving problems for the challenges that Chilean export industries are facing today.

Bioinformatics & Computational Biology: Computational tools to study biological phenomena supporting applications in biotechnology and human health.
