HCEM

The Molecular Centre of Excellence

The Hungarian Centre of Excellence for Molecular Medicine (HCEMM) has been founded in Szeged. The project, with over 15 billion HUF funding, focuses on biomedical research and diagnostics of non-communicable, widespread and common disease, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer and inflammatory diseases, which claim around 30 million victims each year worldwide.

The scientific research will place a strong emphasis on the diagnostics of diseases that are widespread in Hungary, including immunological, metabolic and tumorous diseases, cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension; rheumatism, eczema, psoriasis, diabetes and cancer. The future centre in Szeged will strongly promote the clinical application of the results of basic research and the development of new therapy methods. Results from this research may provide breakthroughs in molecular diagnostics and also customized therapy.


The HCEMM was established through cooperation of the University of Szeged, the Biological Research Centre, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Szeged, the University of Debrecen, Semmelweis University and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory. The centre for excellence will enhance the research capacity of each institute and the formation of new scientific relations. Additional common goals include the joint development of infrastructure, joint doctoral training programmes and joint clinical research training programmes.

I came from a city where young women have recently successfully fought against the mentality that had not allowed them to go to study abroad.5 years ago families were extremely protective over their daughters, but nowadays it has been changed into a new perception which allows girls to have the freedom to choose their way of life: career and personal development.

The Student life here is buzzing with hundreds of international students from all around the world. What I love in here is that you bump into students everywhere, from both Hungary and all around the world, and that despite our differences we are kinda accepted in town. I looked University of Szeged up on the internet and, when I saw that this was called the city of sunshine, it became clear in my mind that it would be the place, where I wanted to be as an Erasmus student. Szeged was far beyond my expectations, and I am glad to be able to admire the beauty of this city. The nature itself has the power to calm me down, so the Botanic Garden of the University is a special place to me.
