After molecular interaction modelling and in silico design, biomimetic compounds are produced that are potential drug candidates in PPI modulation.

The research group operates in two branches: one in Szeged at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Szeged and another at the Hungarian National Archives of the National Archives of Hungary in Budapest and it is maintained by the Office for Research Groups Attached to Universities and Other Institutions of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

 

16. MTA-SZTE Antiquity and Renaissance: Sources and Reception Research Group

Head of Research Group: Éva Vígh (Faculty of Arts)

Members of Research Group: István Lázár, János Nagyillés, Annamária Molnár, Attila Hajdú, Gergő Gellérfi, Ágnes Máté, Gábor Petneházi, László Szörényi, Réka Lengyel, Péter Ertl, Márton Róth

Research Topic: Study of ancient literary and cultural historical sources and their reception in the Renaissance

In the research of the extremely rich network of relationships of Antiquity and the Renaissance, researchers boasting of significant international achievements work in the individual fields (classical philology, neo-Latin literature and the literature of New Latin languages), but a workshop where the relevant investigations would be conducted in close cooperation, in an organized way and along a clearly articulated concept currently does not exist in our country. Our team carries out a coordinated study of these areas and research directions accompanied by international research by co-ordinating experienced researchers and involving young researchers whose highly promising work is linked to the relationship between these two periods of literary and cultural history. Research carried out by the research group also contributes to the study of the European impact story and to the discovery of centuries-old Hungarian reception. As a summary of our research, we have four volumes (books of Éva Vígh, Péter Ertl, Gergő Gellérfi and Ágnes Máté) and the first issue of Antiquity & Renaissance, a new scientific periodical founded by the Research Group, which will come out every six months (Spring 2018), to be published. In addition to holding two workshops reviewing the work and achievements of the previous period and designating tasks for the next period, the members of the research group regularly attend conferences at home and abroad and publish the results of the research in these forums as well as in printed form.

Ahmad Adha - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

I am Ahmad Adha from Indonesia and currently a 3rd year student in Theoretical Linguistics PhD program. I chose the University of Szeged (SZTE) as my study destination because it is located in the center of the town and it is also the highest ranked university in Hungary. The university staff and the professors were very accommodating and understanding when I decided to change the program that suits my research topic. I am so glad that I can be a part of my current department, and of course SZTE, since it is also the Center of Pragmatic Research which aims to promote advanced linguistic pragmatic research with international collaborations. After graduating, I wish to continue to work in my academic field as a professor and a researcher. My advice for prospective SZTE students is to choose a university with a good academic reputation that fits their passion.

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."
