Fondazione Pisana per la Scienza is a non-profit research institute dedicated to the development and application of bioanalytical techniques with two distinct trajectories:
- Biotechnology – FPS develops cutting edge technology platforms that provide new capabilities to the Pisan biomedical community, thereby aiding its growth and international standing. These technical services are also available to all scientists and professionals, independent of their affiliation or geographical location. See "Technology Platforms" for more details.
- Biomedical research - FPS performs independent research with its own scientific staff and resources also within Pisan, national and international collaborations, in which the biotechnological capabilities of the FPS laboratories are utilized to investigate key biomedical questions. Currently the FPS research program comprises two areas, oncology and neuroscience. More details can be found under "Research Activities".
Fondazione Pisana per la Scienza laboratories are scheduled to move to a new building specifically designed to host biomedical research: some pictures are shown above and will be updated to illustrate the progress of the construction work.
