Biomedical Research Towards Effective Diagnosis and Treatment
We support basic research across the biomedical spectrum with a high potential for technological transfer in human medicine. Our projects are focused on biomedical challenges, such as finding effective diagnostic markers and treatment of serious diseases associated with aging of the human population i.e. neurodegeneration, trauma, ischemia, musculoskeletal disorders, cancer and degenerative changes in vision and hearing. We also seriously consider the impact of environmental pollution on human health.
The Institute of Experimental Medicine CAS is a recognized center of basic biomedical research in the Czech Republic. At present, the institute consists of 11 separate scientific departments, focusing on research in biochemistry, cell and developmental biology, pathology, molecular embryology, genetic toxicology and nanotoxicology, neurobiology, neurophysiology, neuropathology, oncology, tissue replacement, and nanomedicine.
We develop and verify analytical, diagnostic, and therapeutic methods.
