Sano, currently in the process of establishment, aims to become a major driving force for European advancement in the rapidly growing field of computational medicine, developing sophisticated engineering methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, to meet the overarching worldwide need for efficient, effective and radically streamlined healthcare systems.
Sano will combine expertise in biomechanics, large-scale high-performance computing and machine learning-based decision science with fundamental biomarker identification using advanced simulation and data analysis methods. It will act as a core technology and expertise provider for industry, fostering modernisation, innovation and increased productivity.
Operationally, Sano strategically combines the most prestigious scientific grant currently available in Poland – the International Research Agenda project – with one of the most competitive grants in EU’s H2020: Teaming for Excellence Phase 2. Combined with additional Polish Ministry of Science guarantees, the Centre has secured significant investment of the order of 30-32 million Euro over a seven-year period. With this scale of funding, and aided by an excellent European partnership network, we can be confident that Sano will bring a critical mass to this already well-developed field of research, in order to translate scientific advancements into clinical practice.
To be successful, Sano requires an ambitious, professional, passionate and experienced Director to lead the Centre and determine its research directions. This role will have significant impact on the successful implementation of innovative research programmes in terms of applied computational medicine. The Director must bring professional experience reflecting a broad scientific background in computational medicine, and possess an excellent track-record in research, particularly in the in silico domain.
