Our Research

Systems Biology Ireland (SBI) designs new therapeutic approaches to cancer. Our research enables development of technologies that can be used for early identification of responsive patient groups and accelerated discovery of new combination therapies.


Systems Biology Ireland can provide a range of services and expertise to companies seeking to innovate in the area of early patient stratification for clinical trials and new strategies for development of precision cancer medicines.
