GE Helps Provide a 'European First' at New Biomedical Research Center

Apr 26, 2016

On October 9 2015 inauguration of the Biomedical Research Center took place at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW). GE Healthcare contributes to research into diseases that pose serious risks to public health, and is bringing an innovative edge to the Center.

Scientists from SGGW will be using GE’s magnetic resonance imaging technology, the Discovery 750w, a with GEM suite and a 3T system supporting multinuclear spectroscopy; as well as Revolution GSI, computed tomography technology with a thermal ablation system that works with GE Healthcare’s magnetic resonance technology. This is the first time in Europe that these machines will be operating together in one facility.

While touring the facility with Mr. Marek Sawicki, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, representatives of local government and SGGW, I had an opportunity to appreciate all of the hard work that went into launching one of Poland’s leading research centers.

The new Center will conduct basic research to address the latest concerns of biomedical, medical and veterinary sciences, while also pursuing scientific projects in pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements and feed additives.

GE Healthcare technology will form an essential part of the Center’s tomography and magnetic resonance unit, and in addition will create new jobs for skilled specialists.
