FABI

FABI has grown rapidly since its establishment in 1998. The FABI team is made up of 37 academic staff, 20 adjunct faculty, more than 200 post graduate (M.Sc., Ph.D.) students, more than 40 post-doctoral fellows and a small core of support staff. Approximately 30 languages are spoken by members of the FABI team, which is a remarkably multinational and multicultural group. More than 550 PhD and MSc students have graduated under the supervision of research leaders associated with FABI.
