The University of Pécs inaugurates a new research centre, unique in Europe

The Preclinical Research Centre of the Medical School of the University of Pécs has just been inaugurated. The project has created a suitable environment for teaching and research activities, and the centre is unique and niche in the region in several respects. 

Professor Attila Miseta, Rector of the University of Pécs, said at the inauguration ceremony: "The research work carried out in the Preclinical Research Centre can bring us closer to understanding the development of diseases through a better understanding of physiological and pathophysiological phenomena, and also provides an opportunity to test new therapeutic treatments. It is hoped that this state-of-the-art research unit will also foster collaborations with other partners nationwide and abroad," he said.

The establishment of the quality infrastructure requirements and conditions necessary for the teaching and research activities of the Medical School in Pécs has been an endeavour of the faculty for almost two decades," said Professor Miklós Nyitrai, Dean of the Medical School of the University of Pécs, in connection with the project. "During the project, four separate entrance areas with their own air conditioning systems were created. The operating theatre of the new centre is not only equipped with state-of-the-art operating tables, which are essential for postgraduate medical training, but this unique department in Europe also allows the development of operating techniques and materials for surgery. A further department will be dedicated to research into infectious diseases, whose importance has been heightened by the COVID pandemic," the Dean stressed.

The project was implemented with the support of the European Union in the framework of the EFOP tender "Infrastructural Development of the University of Pécs", with a total gross investment of more than HUF 1.2 billion.
