The Ri.MED Foundation was established in 2006 with an international partnership between the Italian Government, the Presidency of the Region of Sicily, the Italian National Research Council (CNR), the University of Pittsburgh (UP) and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).

The goal of Ri.MED, located in Palermo, is to promote, support, and conduct biotech and biomedical research projects to rapidly transfer innovative results in the clinical practice. Ri.MED intends to pursue this goal:

  • Increasing scientific knowledge in biotechnology applied to the progress and to the benefit of the community
  • Training scientific, technical, and administrative staff
  • Creating and managing biotech research laboratories

The Biomedical Research and Biotechnology Center (BRBC) in Carini, Palermo, is the first project designed to accomplish the Foundation’s goals.The land where the BRBC will be built was provided by the Region of Sicily.
