The Institute of Biomedical Technology (IBT) at the University of Tampere is dedicated to excel in basic and translational research and education in the field of biomedicine.
Its research activities cover diverse areas, including cancer, immunology, cellular biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology and stem cell based regenerative medicine with a common aim of developing personalized medicine via new diagnostic and treatment methods. IBT also houses FinMIT, the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in research on mitochondrial genetics, disease and ageing.
IBT is part of BioMediTech, a joint institute of the University of Tampere (UTA) and Tampere University of Technology (TUT). The collaboration between the universities has enabled a unique research and educational environment. In the autumn 2012 UTA and TUT launched a joint education with the objective to educate top-level experts in life sciences and medical technology.
