Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC) was established in 2003 by the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation to form an elite centre in biomedical research.

Mission & aims

BRIC’s mission is devoted to biomedical research, primarily within cancer and neurological diseases. Our goal is to contribute to a basic understanding of how and why disease occurs, to discover new disease-related genes, potential targets and biomarkers, in order to provide more efficient treatments for patients.

Our main aims are to:

  • Perform cutting-edge basic biomedical research in an open and diverse environment fostering interdisciplinarity and collaboration
  • Offer outstanding research training of young scientists
  • Translate research findings into societal value
