Why in the Biopark Charleroi Brussels South ?
The main aim of the CMMI as a leading research center in the field of preclinical imaging is to stimulate and promote the scientific development and intellectual potential of the Region and attract external investments. The Center is located in the Biopark Charleroi Brussels South in the close proximity of the research and academic institutions such as the IBMM (Institute of Molecular Biology and Medicine), the IMI (Medical Immunology Institute), as well as biomedical research companies. This enables close and efficient co-operation between all the parties at the Biopark Charleroi Brussels South, and allows a truly multi-disciplinary exchange of information, ideas and technological advancements in the Region.
