From discovery to health

Research is an essential endeavor at the First Faculty of Medicine. Our scientists and researchers conduct basic, translational, epidemiologic and clinical research across a broad spectrum of biomedical topics. In a tight cooperation with the General University Hospital and other partners, we bring research from “bench to bedside”.

The goal of this joint project supported by the European Regional Development Fund is to establish European Centre of Excellence in biomedicine and biotechnology.
With a support of the European Regional Development Fund we also recently opened Centre for Advanced Preclinical Imaging (CAPI) - a top-notch facility enabling various form of visualization in experimental animals including CT, MRI, PET/SPECT and MPI. The center is integrated in the pan-European research infrastructure EUROBIOIMAGING.
