Inbiotec are a Technology Centre with more than 20 years working on the development of biotechnological solutions aimed at boosting competitiveness in different industrial sectors. Inbiotec was founded in 1993 as a non-for-profit private research center. A that time, public administrations and industrial companies joined efforts in order to leverage the source of knowledge and scientific staff arising from the University of León. The initial range of research activity, defined by local stakeholders and resting on industrial microbiology, was broadening over the years from the focus on antibiotics production to other research fields, encompassing food, feed, chemicals, materials and environmental applications.
Instituto de Biotecnología de León origins are related to the proximity of a dynamic biopharmaceutical hub and an academic nucleus which has provided acknowledged professionals in biotechnology and related sciences. INBIOTEC has witnessed how its capabilities and activity range have increased over the years to bring about solutions that meet the needs of industry in order to successfully tackle the latest demanding challenges in productivity, differentiation and sustainability.
Technologies are the key to successful innovation. Together with an active technological partnering, keep a scientific and technological core capacity which draws on the in-house range of technologies available, enabling to perform research and development encompassing complementary activities in different biotechnological fields. Such as, Microbial Biotechnology, Omics Technologies, In vitro / In vivo models, Analytical Chemistry/Toxicology
Inbiotec relies on a solid nucleus made up of researchers, over 70% PhDs, with an optimum balance between experience and youth. This is the wealth of the organization, enabling an innovative and technological mindset built upon a sound scientific basis. A core-staff with an average age of 44, all of them more than 12 years as postdoctoral researchers and accruing more than 350 articles in high impact scientific journals, brings together the necessary creativity, flexibility, enthusiasm and knowledge to lead their teams towards the attainment of innovation goals.
