Turku Centre for Biotechnology is a joint department of the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University, providing high-end technologies and expertise to academic and industrial researchers. These services benefit from the internationally competitive, excellent research carried out by CBT investigators. Our researchers discover molecular events underlying biological function and identify how this information can be used to improve life quality.
