The Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering of Polish Academy of Sciences (IBBE-
PAS) was founded in 1975. The Institute is the biggest centre of biomedical engineering in Poland
and has a long history of training and awarding of young generation of the biomedical engineering
experts. IBBE-PAS is a coordinator of the nationwide scientific network carrying studies in the
field of biomedical engineering (BIOMEN), a coordinator and co-implementer of the nationwide
Foresight project concerning development of “Scenarios of Medical Technologies' Development
until 2020 in Poland”. According to appraisal of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education the
Institute is a first category institution ranked at 4th position among 53 institutions from group of
research units in the field of “Electrotechnics, automatics, electronics and information
technologies”. In 2008 IBBE-PAS joined a new established BIOCENTRUM Ochota consortium
that also associates: Institute of Experimental Biology PAS, Institute of Biochemistry and
Biophysics PAS, Institute of Experimental and Clinical Medicine PAS, Institute of Fundamental
Technological Research PAS and International Institute for Molecular and Cellular Biology.

At present the Institute employs 149 employees including 11 professors and 13 associate professors.
Since 2008 its structure consists of six departments: Hybrid Biosystems Engineering, Technical
Support of Medical Diagnosis and Therapy, Biophysical Measurements and Imaging, Technical
Support of the Lost Functions of the Organism, Mathematical and Computer Modeling of
Physiological Processes as well as Engineering of Nervous and Muscular Systems.    

The Institute publishes the Journal of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering, which is indexed
and abstracted in the following Thomson Reuters products: Science Citation Index Expanded
(SciSearch® ) and Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition.
