udb Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education at Ensenada, B.C. Liga a CICESE
Biomedical Innovation Department Español

Our goal is to develop the full potential of the biomedical research at CICESE, with the consequent technology transfer to both national and international pharmaceutical industry.

We have isolated several molecules with biological activity, focused on attacking diseases like tuberculosis, diabetes and colon, breast, cervical, lung, prostate and skin cancer, and we are also seeking treatment for chronic pain.

Several of our projects are already in the process of technology transfer and others are on track to obtain invention patents, however, we require more studies to analyze their real potential to become drugs. That is why, we are working in collaboration with the national pharmaceutical industry and international biotechnology companies, because with their support, we will give more assertive steps in the consolidation of these molecules as new drugs.

The Biomedical Development Unit (BDU) is a generator of knowledge and we seek to be the main source of technology transfer from CICESE.
