Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology

General Information

Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology of Academy of Sciences of Moldova was established in 2005, through the fusion of the following academic institutes:

  • Institute of Microbiology (founded in 1992 on the basis of the Microbiology Section, that started to work in 1959 – the sole scientific institution in Moldova in the field of general and industrial microbiology);
  • National Collection of Nonpathogenic Microorganisms (founded in 2003 according as a research institution main areas of which are storage, keeping and the utilization of the microbial resources);
  • Scientific Centre of Patho-biology and Pathology ASM (founded in 1991 with the purpose of integration and orientation of the principal basic and applied research directions in the area of the patho-biology and clinical pathology).

Institute’s Focus

Main objectives of the IMB are focused on:

  • Improvement of physiological and biochemical potential of microorganisms as the sources for products used in agriculture, food industry, preservation of the environment, medicine (hepatoprotectors, imunomodulators, antiatherosclerosis preparations);
  • Scientific basis of agricultural biotechnologies for vegetal protein obtaining and the improvement of the soil fertility;
  • Biotechnologies for the microorganisms potentially used for improvement of soil and water quality, biological degradation of xenobiotics;
  • Microbiological preparations obtaining;
  • Biotechnological methods of water, air and soil quality monitoring;
  • Proceedings for optimal keeping and storage of strains microorganisms for biotechnological and scientific scopes in accordance with international standards.

Valuable Technology Offerings

  • Improvement of the physiologic-biochemical potential of microorganisms as biotechnological objects;
  • Development of bioactive preparations production technologies designated for usage in agriculture and medicine as well as in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries;
  • Conservation and efficient utilization of the microbial resources.

Scientific Cooperation and Technology Transfer

The Institute maintains extensive international scientific contacts and collaborates with many scientific centers, such as:

  • Research Center "Molecular Endocrinology and Oncology" of University Laval (Quebec, Canada);
  • Neurology Center of Kislovodsk (Russia);
  • Department of Molecular and Structural Biology, Max Planck Institute, Germany;
  • Institutes Phthisiopneumology and Cardiology "Al.I.Cuza", University of Iasi;
  • State University of Marakesh, Morocco.
