The ProNova VINN Excellence Centre for Protein Technology is a research centre initiated in 2007 by Swedens Innovation Agency VINNOVA, to promote close collaboration between the Swedish life science industry and academia in the field of protein technology.
The ProNova Centre is hosted by the School of Biotechnology at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and it is located at the AlbaNova University Centre in Stockholm as well as at the Science for Life Laboratories (SciLifeLab) in Solna. In addition to the academic research groups at KTH, eight companies in the life science sector are currently industrial partners of the ProNova Centre.
The Centre budget is approximately 2.5 MUSD (21 MSEK)/year, with equal contributions from VINNOVA, KTH and industrial partners.
The vision of the ProNova Centre is to be one of the leading academic Centres in the world for multi-disciplinary research in protein technology, including technology-driven research in protein engineering, bioimaging, microfluidics, affinity technology, biomarker discovery and analysis. The research activities include technology development as well as the use of the Centre platforms to address different biological questions and needs expressed by the partner companies.
The ProNova Centre is now in the fourth stage of its operations, corresponding to years 9 and 10 of the operations and involving the period April 2015 - March 2017.
The ProNova Centre is working in close collaboration with the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) program. With access to the world’s largest set of antibodies and recombinant human protein fragments, the Centre is developing new methods and technologies for applications in bioscience and biomedicine.
