Full operation should start in January 2016. It should consist in implementation of five research programmes and launching six research infrastructures and core facilities. Until 2020, the BIOCEV Centre should absorb up to 450 researchers, including 200 doctoral students. Their efforts will be aimed at obtaining detailed knowledge of organisms at the molecular level, with results inspiring applied research and development of novel treatment strategies.
