Palermo, November 27 - Italian Health Minister
Renato Balduzzi said on Tuesday that the projected Biomedical
Research and Biotechnology Center (CBRB) to be located in
Carini, a few miles from the Palermo International Airport,
represents a "great opportunity not only for Sicily, but also
for the entire Mediterranean".
Construction of the new 25,000-square-meter center CBRB,
presented Tuesday in Palermo, is slated to begin in 2013 and be
completed in 2016.
When fully operational, the center will employ some 600
people and approximately as many jobs will be created in the
allied industries the center will help develop.
The staff will include researchers, biologists, physicians,
engineers and specialized technicians.
In addition, the CBRB will have a positive impact on the
Sicilian economy, said Balduzzi.
"The interaction between a research facility and its
adjacent research hospital will provide an important opportunity
for our country that will give Italy a significant advantage".
The center is backed by the Ri.MED Foundation, established
in 2006 through an international partnership between the Italian
Government, the Region of Sicily, the Italian National Research
Council (CNR), the University of Pittsburgh and the University
of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
Research at BRBC will focus on structural biology to
develop drugs and vaccines, tissue engineering, regenerative
medicine, biomedical device development, computational biology,
drug discovery to identify new primary compounds, vaccine
development, molecular imaging and neuroscience.
