The organizational and management model ensures autonomy and scientific excellence with an international evaluation system. Research groups are pursuing in cross cutting fields and are reviewed every 5 years in order to ensure scientific excellence. HCEMM focuses on and supports molecular medicine-oriented research activities targeting key, highly prevalent ageing-related non-communicable diseases.
Who We Are
The Hungarian Centre of Excellence for Molecular Medicine – HCEMM - is a game changer organization which catalyzes reforming changes in the research culture and makes impact in the regional development of Hungarian knowledge regions.
HCEMM was created by the union of the University of Szeged, the Semmelweis University and the Biological Research Center of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. They were joined by the National Research, Innovation and Development Office representing the Hungarian Government as project coordinator and by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) as advanced scientific institution.
HCEMM focuses on and supports molecular medicine-oriented research activities targeting key, highly prevalent ageing-related non-communicable diseases.
The research strategy is based on three thematic pillars and three cross-cutting horizontal themes. Of further importance, high-quality excellent research would be most efficiently (but not exclusively) supported by establishing a matrix of advanced core facilities in the HCEMM.
The thematic pillars are highly complementary and synergistic in terms of the underlying concepts and research approaches. Moreover, all imply similar needs for high-end technologies and core facilities. Finally, they represent strong research areas in Hungary and a number of already existing excellent Hungarian groups will create a ‘seed incubator environment’ of scientific excellence.
