Mission of the Institute

The Institute of Biotechnology and Antibiotics (IBA) is a research institute. The scope of work of the Institute relates to the protection of health and the pharmaceutical industry. IBA employs more than 150 people, including more than 30 research scientists.

Our mission is:

  • to conduct scientific research in biotechnology, and the development and implementation of recombinant proteins and other biologically active substances,
  • to build up and elevate the reputation and position of the IBA within the scientific communities and in the pharmaceutical sector,
  • to disseminate the quality assurance policy for IBA operations.

Realization of Mission

The Institute collaborates with a number of scientific units both in Poland and abroad. The principle of our work in the pharmaceutical and medical domain is to carry out scientific research and to implement the developed technologies into production. We also expand our production based on in-house technology. Our actions are supplemented with a package of services which are contracted by external institutions.

The Institute is the manufacturer of the antineoplastic drug:

Biodribin® (cladribine) – a deoxyadenosine nucleoside derivative used in hairy cell leukaemia, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and malignant non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas.

Scientific Achievements

We are focused on developing value within areas that are key for us:

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology – genetic engineering of new gene expression systems, genome diagnostics, monoclonal antibodies and the production of highly purified biologically active compounds of a protein structure (e.g. recombined human insulin, growth hormone, interferon).

Chemistry of therapeutic compounds including research and production methods for ß-lactam, aminoglycosides, macrolide and anthracycline antibiotics.
