Welcome to the Molecular Medicine Research Center (MMRC), the first research center of the University of Cyprus (UCY) that aspires and aims at developing front-line research on inherited human diseases and offer better prospects for diagnosis, prevention and therapy.
Briefly, we wish to inform you that a research proposal we submitted to the European Commission with the code name "CY-Biobank", succeeded in funding through Stage 1 of the Horizon 2020-ΤΕΑΜΙΝG call. The aim of Stage 1 is to prepare a detailed Business Plan in which we will describe our research goals and that is going to be submitted again to the European Commission for the Stage 2 evaluation, asking for up to 10 mi euro. The idea of our project concerns the upgrading of the MMRC that we started 4 years ago, into a Center of Excellence. We have achieved great progress in Biobanking in Cyprus, especially in the field of inherited kidney disorders, but a lot more needs to be done in order to better serve the Cypriot and European citizens.
