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.

SZTE Experience


julieJulie Deschanels- Faculty of Law and Political Sciences- Business Law

I chose the University of Szeged, because it has a very good international reputation. When I previously checked the website of the University I liked the fact that Szeged is not too big and too small. I received a lot of help from the ESN mentors. I like Hungary and Szeged a lot and I’m enjoying my classes. When I have free time I go jogging, or play foosball with my friends. In Szeged I really love Süti, nem süti, the river and TIK, because it is just perfect place to study: specious place with full of students and books.

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.
