Centre of High Technology
in Medicine

The Centre conducts interdisciplinary research in medicine, cell and molecular biology, protein biochemistry, microscopy, chromatography, chemistry, and physics.


The Centre aims at addressing global scientific challenges in medicine, developing innovative approaches for prevention, early diagnosis, and effective treatment, and using fundamental scientific advances to find ways to save humankind from social diseases.


The Centre works with medical devices for minimally invasive surgery and lost function recovery; with medical supplies; with diagnostic and visualization systems; and with drugs and drug delivery systems.
