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.

Hamza Baniata – Faculty of Science and Informatics

I am Hamza Baniata, a first-year student at the Doctoral School of Computer Science, and I am From Jordan. SZTE is continuously supporting research and it has an internationally recognized, highly ranked group of professors. It also offers courses and research topics that are strongly related to my research field; Cloud Computing, Fog Computing and Internet of Things. All of this motivated me to apply to the University/Department of Software Engineering. Szeged is a calm city, full of love and peace. The University of Szeged is similar to the city, which provides the perfect environment for creation and development. Studying at the university requires a high level of effort, commitment and seriousness. Applying to the university and having these characteristics are my two pieces of advice to prospective students. It is very early to define my future now, but I am planning to apply to a research position in my field after graduation and if I had the opportunity, I would love to contribute my effort and knowledge in advancing such a wonderful and respected university.

Nikki - Faculty of Health Sciences and Social Studies

My name is Nikki and I am from Iran. Currently I am a second year student studying Physiotherapy at the University of Szeged. I really like the Environment of Szeged as it is a true University City where you can meet people from around the world. I consider Szeged as my second home since I have established my own path here and I have a lot of friends who make me feel home. The reason why I came to Szeged is because I was informed by one of my friends about the fact that the University degrees are EU accredited and will help me to reach my goals and open doors for future job opportunities. Once I have obtained my degree, I would like to stay in Hungary and pursue a post graduate program. Later on I will seize the opportunity to gain some job experience in my field here in Hungary before I hold my ground in Europe.
