Spin-off companies

The research activity of GRIB has originated the creation of the following spin-off companies:

  • BioCloud Services, founded in 2015 with the participation of Alba GutiĆ©rrez-Sacristan, researcher of the IBI Group of GRIB, as Chief Science Officer (CSO). BioCloud aims to provide cloud solutions for bioinformatic challenges such as the lack of computational power, lack of reproducibility of data analysis or data sharing difficulties among others. The startup also provides teaching tools for university courses and workshops when high computational power or data storage is needed. Currently Biocloud has started by providing support at Master of Omic Data Analysis (UVIc) and Master of Bioinformatics (UAB).
  • Chemotargets SL, founded in 2006 under the auspices of the IMIM by Jordi Mestres, head of the Systems Pharmacology group of GRIB. Chemotargets offers validated and cutting-edge computational methodologies with top market predictive performance. The innovation strategy is driven by new cutting edge methods generated at the Pharmacology group of GRIB. Chemotargets is currently recognized as a global leader in predictive analytics solutions for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and research institutions. Its goal is to help the biopharma industry fast-forward the process of bringing new medicines to market, speeding up drug discovery and development programs, and improving cost-efficiency.
  • Acellera Ltd, founded in 2006 by Gianni de Fabritiis, head of the Computational Science group of GRIB. Acellera is a technology company focused on delivering services and solutions to companies and academic institutions on computing intensive, mission-critical applications. By exploiting heavily optimized molecular simulations and the outstanding computational capabilities of new accelerator processors, we help to achieve otherwise unreachable results using current standard technology.                                                                                                                                                                
  • Pharmatools Interactive Services, founded by Ferran Sanz, head of the Integrative Biomedical Informatics group.
