CIGB

Synthetic Peptides 2019 is organized by the Biomedical Research Branch of the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB).

The CIGB is located in the west side of Havana City and together with other nearby scientific research centers integrates what is best known as the 'west Havana scientific pole'. This research center was opened in July 1st, 1986. During these more than 25 years several new vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs for human health has been developed and are currently in use in the Cuban Health System. The CIGB is 15 minutes from José Martí International Airport and 20 minutes from Havana downtown by car. The geographic position of CIGB is showed with a red circle in the map below.
