Description: 

Mossakowski Medical Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences (MMRC PAS) is unique in bridging basic science in the field of medical biology and clinical medicine. It is an ideal place of choice for medical researchers who would like to develop scientific concepts under conditions of support and cooperation from the institute’s research community and administration, and then test their hypotheses using experiments in vitro and  ex vivo, preclinical tests on animal models and, ultimately, clinical trials. Thus, MMRC PAS offers comprehensive solutions and stimulating environment for tackling key problems of contemporary medicine. We are strongly focused on practical applications of the institute’s scientific achievements and discoveries, hence collaborations with biomedical, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetics industries are encouraged and fostered. 

Disciplines: medical biology, medicine, medical sciences
