In March 2014 a new spin-off company of Masaryk University was incorporated into the Companies’ Register – the Institute of Biostatistics and Analyses, Ltd. (IBA, Ltd.) Why was it established and what goals does it aim to achieve?
The spin-off was conceived by the team of the Institute of Biostatistics and Analyses of Masaryk University (IBA MU) – an academic institution specialising in research and training in the field of biostatistics, evaluation of medical technologies and applied medical informatics. This institute stands behind the field of Mathematical Biology at the Faculty of Science; it also participates in a number of projects and post-gradual education at the Faculty of Medicine. Besides these academic activities, the cost centre of IBA MU manages a lot of research projects which often concern the commercial sector. These include e.g. clinical trials, development and implementation of hospital data collection software, management of clinical research projects and related services.
