Located at the Campus Biotech in Geneva, CBIP already hosts a number of companies, including Zurich-based Relief Therapeutics, HC2 Healthcare and Pharma Consulting, the Geneva Biotech Center, Quartz Bio and Israeli SME Signals Analytics. EPFL’s spin-off Sophia Genetics, Addex Therapeutics and Chinese company Biostime, together with representatives from its new Australian affiliate Swisse, are expected to move in soon.
