Plan Budynku

The University of Warsaw Biological and Chemical Research Centre (CNBCh UW) is a research facility located on the “Ochota” Campus. The CNBCh UW is dedicated to scientists conducting advanced research of great scientific importance, whose results are used in the development of new technologies in the fields of energetics, analytics, pharmaceuticals, medicine, biotechnology, new materials, conservation of environment and cultural heritage. The CNBCh UW gathers the most talented young researchers, as well as experienced scientists from diverse disciplines.

The CNBCh UW is the result of the CENT III (www.cent3.uw.edu.pl) project, which consisted of two parts: construction works and the purchase of necessary research equipment. CNBCh UW building provides 21 032 m2 of floor area, including laboratories fitted with state-of-the art research equipment. The CNBCh UW project was financed by the Operational Programme Innovative Economy, Priority II. R&D Infrastructure. Measure 2.1. Support for development of research infrastructure of scientific entities. The total cost of this project is over 294 million Polish zlotys. Thanks to European Union funds, the CNBCh UW is one of the most modern research facilities in Europe.

The establishment of the CNBCh UW was part of the program of modernization and extension of life science faculty infrastructure on the „Ochota” Campus.
The CNBCh UW was founded by the Rector of the University of Warsaw by virtue of a regulation from the 30th of May 2012. The opening ceremony took place on 22nd of March 2013.

As an interfaculty organizational unit, the CNBCh UW provides a collaborative platform for scientists from the Faculties of Biology and Chemistry of the University of Warsaw. The CNBCh UW is managed by the Director, supervised by the Scientific Council of the CNBCh UW. The Council defines operational aims, plans and manages the CNBCh UW (in consultation with the authorities of the Faculties of Biology and Chemistry) and evaluates their realization in the Centre.

Affiliated professors at the University of Warsaw biological and chemical research centre

The status of the professor affiliated at the University of Warsaw was granted to the following persons on the legal basis of §91a Statute of the University of Warsaw (full text in Monitor UW 2012, number 3A, entry 76):

Professor Ludwik Halicz, Geological Survey of Israel in Jerusalem, Israel.

Professor Halicz specializes in research on development of methods of instrumental analysis in environmental conservation and biogeochemical studies. He focuses on isotopic ratios of elements originating during radioactive decay (e.g. U, Sr, Pb, Ra) and on fractionation of stable isotopes, including Ca, Mg, Sr, Cu and Br.

Professor Ehrenfried Zschech, Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems in Dresden, Germany.

Professor Zschech specializes in research on production and features of new materials, including nanomaterials. He has many years of experience in commercializing research results and in collaborating with business.

Professor Karol Kozak, Medical Faculty, Technical University Dresden, Germany

Professor Kozak conducts research in the field of biomedicine and bioinformatics. He specializes in application of IT tools in medical research, with special focus on   imaging techniques.

Profoessor Gabriela Kramer – Marek specialise in development and characterisation of small molecules targeting cancer, as well as radiolabelled peptides and antibodies targeting the receptors overexpressed on tumor cells. The mission of her team is to use molecular imagining for early prediction of treatment response with emphasis on new targeted terapies.
