StrAU 2 FIRST AND FOREMOST 

1. New research departments and laboratories to launch

Competitive research draft system determines the specialization of newly established structural units of Translational Medicine Centre: 

• Laboratory of chemoinformatics and computational pharmacology 

• Laboratory of structural bioinformatics and molecular modeling 

• Laboratory of medical genomics 

• Laboratory of tissue engineering 

• Laboratory of molecular viral biology 

• Laboratory of optical research methods, bio-imaging and 3D-modelling 

• Laboratory of biotechnologies 

• Laboratory of cell signal systems 

2. Cross-disciplinary clinical research hub for 5-100 Project participant universities 

   The First MSMU is arranging partnerships with medical and technical universities in sense of cross-disciplinary research competences and offering its own University hospitals for clinical trials of drugs and equipment. First MSMU would like to coordinate biotechnology and biocompatible materials research with the universities participating in the 5-100 Project. Cooperation in cross-disciplinary biomedical research is the right way to reduce costs preserving research performance.
