GENESIS Biomed opens a new office in Valencia

GENESIS Biomed  continues with its expansion across the territory. Aware of the potential of the biomedicine ecosystem in the Valencian Community, it takes a significant leap and adds a third location in Valencia to its existing offices in Barcelona and Madrid. Specifically, its office will be located at the BioHub in Valencia, a space for companies in the biomedicine sector situated in the Marina de València. 

The health sector has become one of the main drivers of the Valencian Community’s economy, which concentrates a wide range of institutions related to research, entrepreneurship and the promotion of health. Valencia is the home to a large number of health research institutes and research foundations, including IIS La Fe, INCLIVA, ISABIAL and FISABIO, making it, after Catalonia and Madrid, the region with the next highest number of IIS in terms of population density.

It also has relevant research centers in biomedicine such as the Príncipe Felipe research center, the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SYSBIO), the Institute of Biomedicine of Valencia (IBV-CSIC), the Institute for Research, Development and Innovation in Health Biotechnology (IDIBE) and the Institute of Genomic Medicine.

But, in order to approach Biomedicine in a holistic way, the Valencian Community also integrates leading interdisciplinary research centers in new technologies that also have applications in the area of health, such as the Institute for Molecular Imaging Research (I3M), the Institute of Biomechanics and the Institute of Computer Technology (ITI), among others.

The research groups from the previously mentioned institutions also serve as a talent pool for a growing number of innovative companies. For this reason, GENESIS Biomed, which one of its main functions is to help start-ups, spin-offs, entrepreneurs and research centers, is betting on the Valencian Community and opens a new location in the BioHub. “Our position in the ecosystem of this Community is backed by our experience in the field of tech transfer and biomedical early-stage projects in Valencia, having worked for universities (UPV, UV, UMH), hospitals and healthcare environment (IIS La Fe, INCLIVA, ISABIAL, FISABIO), startups (Corify, Arthex, Sonda, Doppli) and institutions (Inndromeda, CIBER-BBN), among others. Our participation in this cluster will allow us to join forces to share and expand knowledge to generate added value that has a direct impact on the well-being of citizens”, explains a GENESIS Biomed spokesperson.
