BioScience Slovakia, as one of the partners in cooperation with the main partner the Comenius University in Bratislava, participated in the implementation of the project “Building a Competence Centre for Research and Development in the Field of Molecular Medicine” with the ITMS Code 26240220071 funded by the EU Structural Funds.
The main aim of the project was to build a competence centre that will connect the public and private sector to achieve top research results and to support applied research and development in the field of molecular medicine.
The main initiative of the project is the association of leading scientific institutions with the aim of transferring state-of-the-art scientific knowledge into clinical practice in the field of diagnosis and therapy of serious human diseases. The established association will build a functional centre for the creation and transfer of knowledge based on the modern directions of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics leading to predictive and personalized human medical diagnostics on existing personnel, methodological and instrumental infrastructure.
In the emerging centre, it will be possible to develop highly effective approaches to the treatment of severely treatable diseases based on top diagnostics using molecular and cell biology methods. The activities of the newly established centre will be in line with the priorities of the SR’s technical and scientific policy in the area of health and quality of life as well as the development of modern technologies in biomedicine.
The outputs of the centre will be useful not only in Slovakia but also globally because biomedicine is undoubtedly one of the priority development areas of interest of developed countries.
